Neck and Shoulder Pain Due To Sick Small Intestine

Neck and shoulder pain due to SI

The Small Intestine type of neck, shoulder and jaw pain is caused by stagnant QI (vital energy) and Blood along the energetic channel of the Small Intestine. This is caused by physical or mental/emotional imbalances in the Heart and Small Intestine. Poor sleep, digestive problems, sadness, inability to let go of harmful states of mind, poor body posture, and repetitive movements due to work or sports are among the most common reasons causing imbalances in the Small Intestine channel.

 Acupuncture, cupping and guasha are very effective in relieving muscle tension and pain, relaxing the mind, and improving sleep quality.

Muscle Tension and Pain Related to a Sick Liver

Muscle tension is natural reaction to stress since it is the body’s attempt to protect itself, it is a guarding action. Moderate to intense muscle tension is often caused by an imbalance in the Liver/Gallbladder organ’s systems. If the energetic function of the Liver is impaired symptoms such as severe muscle tension and/or spasms, anxiety, irritability, and poor sleep can manifest. Liver imbalances often cause stagnation of QI and Blood along the Gallbladder channel causing tension headaches, migraines, shoulder and neck pain, and poor sleep.

Deep abdominal breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, cutting down on stimulants, reducing fatty foods, and drinking enough water are some of the things that you can do to help your Liver and reduce muscle tension.

 There are other organs that are often involved in muscle tension and pain such as the Heart and Kidneys. A practitioner of Chinese medicine is qualified to perform a differential diagnose and formulate a treatment plan to correct your unique condition.
