I'm a 27 year old male with right shoulder instability. A very general way to put my condition is that my shoulder is rolled forward, lifting and hugging towards my body.
This in turn is causing me to have issues in my entire shoulder girdle, neck, low back and hips.
Has anyone had this condition or seen this before in patients?
I live in Canada and have seen many specialists of various kinds (muscular, neurological, orthopaedic, therapists, ect) and there has been no clear cut answer as to why I'm doing this. Any help is greatly appreciated and I'm willing to travel for it

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You are suffering from atraumatic shoulder instability.Contributing factors are weak muscles,flat or small pocket,stretchy ligaments,coordination problem or disuse.I would suggest you to consult physiotherapist/orthopaedic to re-evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
