Deltoid muscle pain, acupuncture can help

The deltoid muscle is a triangular muscle located on the uppermost part of the arm and the top of the shoulder. Tendons attach the deltoid to the collarbone, shoulder blade, and upper arm. The deltoid is widest at the top of the shoulder and has three origins: the lateral end of the clavicle, the acromion of the scapula at the top of the shoulder, and the spine of the scapula. Each origin gives rise to its own band of muscle fibers. The fibers merge together as they approach the insertion point on the deltoid tuberosity of the humerus and narrows to its apex as it travels down the arm. The deltoid is responsible for lifting the arm and giving the shoulder its range of motion. Contraction of the anterior fibers flexes and medially rotates the arm by pulling the humerus forwards towards the collar bone. The lateral fibers abduct the arm by pulling the humerus toward the acromion, moving the arm away from the body laterally. Contraction of the posterior fibers extends and laterally rotates the arm by pulling the humerus backwards.

Like many other muscles, the deltoid can be sore for a variety of reasons, including overuse and tendon injuries. When the deltoid muscle is injured, one may feel pain or tenderness at the front, side, or back of the shoulder, especially when lifting the arm. The injury can be from mild with tightness and slight pain without restriction of movement to severe pain, swelling and severe restriction of shoulder and arm movements. Acupuncture can release deltoid muscle pain.

People can prevent deltoid pain by a few ways: warming up sufficiently before beginning a workout, taking "rest days" to allow the muscle to recover after exercising, stretching before and after exercise, having regular sports massages and/or acupuncture to relieve tension in the muscles
