I would check that the person has a qualification like a Health Science Degree in Acupuncture or Traditional Chinese Medicine, thats what I’m studying. Check on the AACMA website do a google search and enter the details of your area maybe a search for colleges or universities that do acupuncture in your area they often have clinics. The acupuncture can rebalance and re-energize the affected muscle and help remove scar tissue. Did you have a an ultra sound scan or a arthro-scope (camera into the joint area) to show how much damage and which of the Rotator cuff muscles were affected?

I will look into acupuncture actually. It can’t hurt and may do something for the shoulder. I would like it to be back to 100%

I have no experience with them, is it as simple as pulling out the yellow pages? Or is there an association of accredited acupuncturists?
