HijamaHerbs for Upper Shoulder Pain

Upper shoulder pain or commonly called frozen shoulder means the connective tissue surrounding the shoulder joint has become inflamed and stiffened causing chronic pain, tenderness, and restricted movement of shoulder. There could also be swelling or numbness at the affected area.

Usually, you would notice that one arm is hard to move. To lift the arm is painful and the shoulder aches so much so that at night it becomes difficult to fall asleep, aggravated by moving the shoulders.

A common cause of shoulder pain is soreness of the tendon (a cord that attaches a muscle to a bone) of the rotator cuff. This is the part of the shoulder that helps circular motion. You might experience soreness after painting, lifting items, or playing a sport—anything that requires you to lift your arms.

The shoulder has the most extensive range of motion of any joint in the body. Injury or overuse of the shoulder can lead to inflammation of the tendons and bursae, which are gel-filled sacs that reduce friction between the muscles, bones and tendons as they slide over one another with arm movement.

Swelling due to inflammation can tighten the small area at the top of the shoulder through which the muscles and tendons move. The bones of the shoulder may rub against the muscles at the top of the shoulder, limiting movement. This condition is shoulder impingement, which causes pain that often radiates down the upper arm. Raising the affected arm overhead provokes pain. Over time, the upper arm becomes weak. 

The shoulder joint is also susceptible to arthritic conditions. Arthritis can slowly degrade the shoulder joint, causing loss of joint mobility, stiffness, grinding or popping when the joint is in use and aching pain that often radiates down the upper arm. With loss of shoulder function, the arm becomes progressively weaker due to lack of use. 

Many people with upper shoulder pain tend to keep the shoulder joint in a fixed position in order to avoid pain, but it actually hardens the joint even further. The motion of the shoulder joint becomes even more limited.

People generally seek medical assistance once they feel the sharp shoulder pain or when the limited shoulder movements make it difficult to do ordinary daily activities such as putting on a shirt, or shampooing, or even taking a wallet out of the back pocket.

The upper shoulder pain is caused by accumulated dirty blood which has becomes hard in the surrounding joint and muscles. This leads to a reduced flow in blood circulation at the upper shoulders.

Hijama stimulates the flow of blood and lymph to the affected area thereby relieving pain and stiffness in the upper shoulders. The procedure extracts toxins, releases tension and moves stagnation. Marks resembling bruising may remain, but they will fade after a few days. Usually clients will feel some relief on the first treatment, but by third treatment, many people become pain free and have anywhere between 80-100% full flexibility and movement.

The HijamaHerbs treatment for upper shoulder pain consists of placing cups on the upper shoulders, making cuts and drawing out the dirty blood, thereby relieving pain and stiffness in the upper shoulders. The procedure extracts toxins, releases tension and moves stagnation.
