Acupuncture can be used to control pain, provide local anti-inflammatory effects on the arm, and address larger structural settings for local wrist problems. In addition to aggravating the muscles and tendons of the forearm, the posture pressures of the neck and upper back usually need to be resolved for long-lasting relief; the neuromuscular effects of acupuncture can help achieve this goal.
Arm pain is defined as discomfort or pain experienced anywhere throughout the arm, and it can include pain in the wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Arm pain can occur due to a variety of different causes. The most common causes are injury or overuse.
