Multiple TCM Techniques Help Rotator Cuff Injury

Injuries can sideline athletes and hunters for an entire season. One fisherman outlines his experience with a shoulder injury. By using a combination of Traditional Chinese Medical techniques, including acupuncture, tuina massage and herbal medicine, his doctor was able to clear up a rotator cuff injury.

He said that there was a three-month window for healing; otherwise the adhesions would grow worse and it would be very difficult to treat.

Tuina, which translates as "grabbing and pulling," is also called "hand technique." It is a physical treatment system more than 2,000 years old that involves stretching and acupressure to stimulate the muscles, tendons, ligaments, spine and joints to encourage the healthy flow of Qi and blood.
