Abstract: The purpose of this study was to test the efficacy of traditional Chinese acupuncture in the treatment of scapulohumeral pain during the early stage following heart surgery, by puncture of points not related anatomically or metamerically with the scapulohumeral joint and without any needle stimulation.

Reduction of pain and angular gain were almost immediate, durable, measurable and reproducible, which could be explained by possible effects of acupuncture on articular sympathetic mechanoreceptors, then suppressing reflex muscular contractions due to intraoperative postural constraints.
