Shoulder pain.

I was in a car accident over a year ago, and since then, my left shoulder(including my trap) is slightly higher than the right. In fact, my collarbone juts out, and I can’t lie flat on it, period. Lifting, especially overhead presses are beginning to hurt. I went to the doctor, and he said it was normal. Huh? Any feedback would be great.

As far as military presses are concerned, skim 'em. Work with dumbells where you press to the center. Try the standing or seated overhead dumbell press, or Arnold press.

Other than that, you may want to consider seeing a specialist that can help you more then that doctor or yours.
