Your dad has been pretty happy with the help I've given him. I perform a therapy known as Primal Reflex Release Technique ( that I believe would really help you out. If you'd like for me to help you find a practitioner in your area, email or PM me off-list. There's a lot of these practitioners in California because that's where it started.

The reason it isn't going away is likely due to the nervous system maintaining upregulated (ie. too "tight") muscles and reflex loops around the shoulder. All the massage and ultrasound/EMS in the world isn't going to fix it if this is the problem. I have seen tendonitis disappear in one treatment (although typically it takes a couple), because once the problem is gone, the irritation/inflammation is easily dealt with by the body.
