After one sessions of acupuncture treatment, patient reported a marked improvement in pain reduction and immediate relaxation of the shoulder area. 

Dietary & lifestyle advice:

Skip the weekend game to allow the body to recover. Pay attention to posture and carry out a desktop assessment at work.

Ivy's thoughts:

Acupuncture can be a very effective treatment method for acute conditions like this. Preventative methods include try not to sleep near an open window at night and stay from air conditioning vents at work.
