- Neck and shoulder pain
- Scapula pain
- Inflammation of the clavical
- Swollen and painful ribs
Best Clinical Use
- Neck and shoulder pain, especially if the pain is in the occipital region along the Bladder channel (Bl 10 and directly distal). If the pain is more lateral, along the Gallbladder channel, use San Zhong / Three Weights.
Needle it perpendicularly 1/2 to 1 cun in depth.
Dr. Robert Chu recommends 1/2 cun and says you don’t need to force the Qi to come with manipulation. In my experience I’ve found he’s right. I sometimes needle Ling Gu and Da Bai on the unaffected side and then these points on the affected side.
