I too have been dx with A.C. in my dominant shoulder…the left. To make matters worse, I am a Sign Language Interpreter. I have been through a round of PT with someone NOT familiar with A.C. While waiting for a new authorization from my insurance I went to a chiropractor. I got immediate relief for about 2 day after which the pain came back. I have also tried acupuncture with some success. Like many I was given all the “standard”” anti-inflamatory drugs to no avail. I have gone the herb route and have seen a significant reduction in pain. I am taking Turmeric (anti-inflamatory),MSM and Bromaline (pineapple extract that help the absorption of the Turmeric). I have not needed to take any Advil, Vioxx for over a week while taking these. I know everyone is different, but this may be something you want to try.
