BACKGROUND

Musculoskeletal and connective tissue injuries lead to over 10 million clinic visits per year in the United States. Causes of these injuries may be external (sports injuries, car accidents, trauma), internal (chronic wear and tear of muscles, ligaments and tendons; bones weakened by osteoporosis), or both. Acute injuries are characterized by severe pain, swelling and inflammation, and in some cases, internal bleeding. Treatment of acute injuries should focus on relieving pain, reducing swelling and inflammation, and stopping bleeding. Chronic injuries are characterized by dull pain, stiffness and numbness, and decreased muscle mass and strength. Treatment of chronic injuries includes relief of pain and restoration of physical and physiological functions.

FORMULA EXPLANATION

Neck & Shoulder (AC) is designed to treat acute neck and shoulder pain. Acute neck and shoulder problems are often caused by accidents, such as car accidents, whiplash injuries, and prolonged body posture in a fixed position. In addition to pain, there is sometimes redness, swelling and inflammation.

        Bai Shao (Radix Paeoniae Alba) and Ge Gen (Radix Puerariae Lobatae) have strong antispasmodic effects to alleviate muscle spasms, cramps and pain. Yan Hu Suo (Rhizoma Corydalis) is a strong analgesic and is used in this formula to invigorate blood, activate qi and alleviate pain. To invigorate blood circulation and alleviate pain, Hong Hua (Flos Carthami), Dang Gui Wei (Extremitas Radix Angelicae Sinensis) and Chuan Xiong (Rhizoma Chuanxiong) are added. Wei Ling Xian (Radix et Rhizoma Clematidis) is used to alleviate pain, promote qi stagnation and unblock stagnation in the channels due to external wind obstruction. With its warm and aromatic properties, Qiang Huo (Rhizoma et Radix Notopterygii) opens the channels and alleviates pain in the upper body. Finally, Gan Cao (Radix et Rhizoma Glycyrrhizae) harmonizes the formula.
