      I have been suffering with an issue where one shoulder (my right) is lower than the other (my left). I have had this issue now for over 6 months which is causing pain into my lats, upper back and neck. The pain is dull throughout the majority of the day and can become severe when I overdo push ups (high volume) or lift heavy weight overhead.
      What I’m currently doing but to no real avail:
      Smashing Chest, Lats, and first rib whilst playing  around with overhead positions
      Thoracic mobility- stretching
      Elbow flares (help lift shoulder for some time but ultimately drop back down)
      OH Shrugs
      Wall Slides
      Deep neck flexor work
      I don’t know what else to do? I’m lost on this one and any any help is greatly appreciated.

      I’d recommend seeing someone to determine the cause, exactly what is going on, and make a plan to address it. You’ve taken a crack at it, however, not seeing change. Shoulders and or hips could be out of alignment.
      Identifying the cause will help to resolve the situation.
