Many people have pain in the scapular region and we have had what I would consider very good results treating it. Scapular pain can be from using a mouse too much, from muscle tension due to stress, or can be from injury leading to a pinched nerve. The pain can usually be narrowed down to one or maybe two 'trigger points' and this is where the treatment will focus. This type of pain can often refer down the arm. The fix is choosing acupuncture points in the area and into the arm and even hand, followed by cupping to the area where the trigger point is. This usually takes a few treatments but can be very successful.
