    It's not something a physio can 'fix' for you - unless you are going to pay for them to follow you around all day, you have to listen to what they say and then work on it yourself. It's boring and irritating but not as boring and irritating as being in pain or unable to lift heavy.

    'Setting' involves pulling the shoulder back and down BUT with the correct muscles i.e. the lower taps NOT the lats and also and this is very important

    1) keeping it there through the day: then you're on the telephone, driving, sitting at a desk etc.

    2) Keep it there when doing high intensity/threshold type movements like weightlifting.

    I want you to freeze where you are. Don't more a muscle.

    Now, where are your shoulders?

    Are they nicely down and back and relaxed or are they hunched forward and possibly slightly raised? You need to work on pulling then back and down using only the lower traps.

    Stretching out your chest and lats often (4 or more tiles a day for a few minutes) may help with this.

    Does the pain relieve when you kinda "hang" your arm from something? For example, holding the end of a smith machine bar and letting your arm dangle? If so, this sounds like a problem I used to have. I don't know if it is connected but shortly after I done some damage to my rotator cuff. I can tell you I wish I only had the ache now!
