Why do we have neck pains? A classical acupuncturist’s approach to the diagnosis and treatment of neck problems

Patients with chronic neck problems are always a challenge in the clinic – many times treatments provide relief of pain and restore mobility but, quite often, the relief is temporary and the issues are never really solved.

 

The reason behind this is that the neck plays a crucial role in Human life – it is the connection between the head and the body; the mediator between Heaven and Earth; the vehicle of interaction between the internal Self and the exterior world.

Chronic issues of the neck point to internal imbalances, which must be addressed in order to promote long-term healing.

 

 

In this lecture we will explore the reasons behind neck pains and discuss specific diagnostic techniques, treatment strategies and point selection to improve clinical success.
