The treatment might be focusing on
1. pain relief by applying stimulation (might be a temporary relief) and
2. try to soften or improve the condition of the tissue that's triggering the nerve. (should give more of a long-term relief)

Sorry for delayed reply. I understand you have pain in brachial plexus after radiation and difficulty in lifting you arm up. Acupuncture will be very helpful to reduce the muscle tightness and also detox from the radiation. In our clinic, we also support cancer patients to prevent the cancer re-appearing. If you have any questions, please let us know.
Thank you so much, wishes you best
Acupuncture definitely can help with the type of pain you are experiencing as it functions to reduce pain and inflammation, relax and rejuvenate muscles, and regulate the nervous system. Another healing modality that may help you in this case is Myofascial Therapy. If you are in the SF Bay Area, I can also refer you to a myofascial therapy practitioner.
Best wishes for your healing,
Acupuncture and physical therapy both would help. Look for a physical therapist that specializes in breast cancer. You may have some cording that has taken place and need that to be worked out. Acupuncture in conjunction with physical therapy would be most effective.

I would start with physical therapy first.
In my opinion, acupuncture will reduce your neck and should pain and increase ROM. But, everyone is different condition even if it's the same symptom. So, I am not sure how much I can help you until I see you. But I am sure I will do my best to help you. If you have any other questions, feel free to call me.
Hopefully you feel better soon.
Acupuncture is known for pain management. I believe series of treatments would help with your symptoms. If you are interested, please call the office at 703-521-0644 to make an appointment.
to treat. Depends on the depth of the radiation in the tissues and what
kind of tissues involved, the outcome could be debilitating to the patients
who received it. Acupuncture and cupping could help the pain and soften the
fibrosis to certain degree. But it also depends on the location and the
depth of the injuries. Hope this helps.

There is a very good possibility acupuncture can help you. It can assist in hydrating the stiff muscle tissue with blood and nutrients. Restoring mobility would be the result.
I personally have treated severe muscle pain and spasm over the course of 29 years.

I also give PT (my own protocol) in between.
