Acupuncture Clinic Shoulder Pain Treatment Hong Kong


The shoulder joint is made up by four joints, including Sterno-clavicular joint, acromio-clavicular joint, gleno-humeral joint and scapula-thoracic joint. The first three joint are true synovial joint while scapulo-thoracic joint is the articulation between scapula and thoracic without synovial structure.

Shoulder joint permits six direction of motion, including flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, internal and external rotation. Scapula-thoracic rhythm is important for its role of rolling scapular, in order to maximise space of arm flexion or abduction. In clinical practice, patient need to learn regain scapula-thoracic rhythm by strengthening rotator cuff muscle.
