I have pain in my left shoulder when performing pressing movements. I also feel like my left arm is extremely weak in comparison to my right arm. It actually feels like my arm is misaligned. I don't really know how else to describe my dilemma, but I do not know what has caused it. It has felt this way every since I can remember, but Doctors always tell me there is nothing wrong (I have only seen internists and a chiropractor so far). I got an xray done and I am curious if anyone thinks something is wrong

Don't know anything about X-Rays but I know this. Do what you can do. Avoid what causes trouble. Flat Bench Press for instance is brutal on the shoulders but Incline Bench Press or Parallel Bar Dips aren't but work the same muscles.

Years ago my left shoulder was so bad it hurt to the point that it would wake me up if I ever rolled over onto it in my sleep. I started light and slow. It popped by popcorn with every rep. Eventually It stopped hurting and then in time it stopped popping. Today I can do any exercise with it pain free. Oddly enough today it is much stronger than the other.
