Case study: Left arm pain alleviated by Acupuncture

Read about a patient who found incredible pain relief through acupuncture.

A 67 year old female came into our office with left arm pain. Her left bicep pain started 6-7 months ago after golfing and moving loads of furniture. The patient stated that golfing and backward flexion caused extreme “sharp, pulling” pain. Pain level was 10/10 and she had a hard time extending the arm. Ice helped, but heat felt good too. The patient was also suffering from poor sleep quality due to the pain.

Both an ultrasound and and an Xray were done and showed no tear. Her doctor stated that there was a buildup of fluid in the long head of bicep.

The patient was doing physical therapy 2 times per week, and was recommended to add Acupuncture into her regimen.

1/6/2020 initial consult + acupuncture. Pain level 10/10
1/10/2020   Left arm pain- 5/10 and range of motion has improved. 50% improvement!
1/13/2020  Pain area has shrunk in diameter, pain level 4/10 and patient states no pain when golfing!  – 60% improvement!
1/17/2020 Pain no longer constant. Only experienced pain one time with specific movement, pain level 4/10 when it occurred
1/31/2020 Left shoulder no longer an issue after 3 treatments. Patient sprained her left ankle, and we started focusing on her other issues including her neck pain and low immune system.

Suggested treatment plan was for 8 acupuncture treatments to manage the pain, increase range of motion in arm and prevent reoccurrence of symptoms. Patient has been happy and surprised with her results.
