The Office: How to Treat Shoulder Pain with DNA

  • How to diagnose pain based on anatomical motion
    • If the shoulder or arm hurts raising the arm forward and medial the problem is associated with Anterior Medial (Hand Tai Yin Jing Jin / LU).
    • If the shoulder or arm hurts when the arm is moved medially only in front of the torso the pain is associated with Medial Medial (Hand Jue Yin Jing Jin / P).
    • If the shoulder or arm hurts when the arm is raised straight in front, then the problem is probably associated with both Anterior Lateral (Hand Yang Ming Jing Jin / LI) and Anterior Medial (Hand Tai Yin Jing Jin / LU).
    • If the shoulder or arm hurts when the arm is raised laterally to the side the pain is associated with Lateral Lateral (Hand Shao Yang Jing Jin / SJ).
    • If the shoulder or arm hurts when the arm is put directly behind the body the pain is associated with Posterior Lateral (Hand Tai Yang Jing Jin / SI).
    • If the shoulder or arm hurts when the arm is put behind the body and then moved medially the pain is associated with Posterior Medial (Hand Shao Yin Jing Jin / HT).
