The purpose of this study is to report the improved case of superior labrum from anterior to posterior tear patient treated with Shinbaro pharmacopuncture and motion style acupuncture treatment. We used Shinbaro pharmacopucture, motion style acupuncture treatment and other korean medicine treatment for this patient. This case is measured and assessed by visual analogue scale (VAS), shoulder range of motion (ROM) and shoulder physical examination (Neer test, O'Brien test). After treatment, VAS decreased and the patient showed improvement of range of motion. Also physical examination of shoulder was improved. Shinbaro pharmacopuncture and motion style acupuncture treatment are thought to be helpful to relieve pain and recover function on shoulder joints, although further study is needed.
