I had a shoulder problem two years ago caused by a broken hand so I am very sympathetic to your plight. From that experience and doing physical therapy, I am willing to wager that you are playing with your elbows too low and perhaps, in addition, your hands too high on the strings. You may want to find a hand physical therapist to work with you to figure out the ergonomics of your hand and arm position.
