In brief: Very unlikely

But it's also unlikely to do any harm, if practiced correctly.

In brief: Cure vs improved sxs

I am amazed at how effective acupuncture is for the treatment of tennis elbow (auricular acupuncture & kb1).
However, the sxs return over time. I have treated shoulder issues as well- but the offending issue will cause the inflammation & pain to recur over time.

In brief: Unlikely

Accupuncture may be effective at temporarily relieving your pain, however it is unlikely to affect the injured tissues and cause them to heal.
