These were really helpful for me as my shoulders were rounded and I had trouble with subacromial impingement. These exercises were prescribed for me in physical therapy.

Eric Cressey addresses alot of these issues very well with some of his YouTube videos.
Thank you for this, I really appreciate it and will try!! Thank you! Looked up Eric Cressey too, thank you!

I deal with this problem daily in my office. 99% of the time its improper mechanics at the thoraco-lumbar junction. Strengthening that area along with the shoulders is the best bet buddy in my opinion. shoulder roll, head forward posture, etc is all related. Make sure you don't have a short leg and start looking at STABALIZING and strengthening that area. Youtube has the answers to anything if you have the right question.

Depending on how much of a difference there is dictates what you can do. 1/2 inch or less can be a simple heel lift. More usually requires alterations to shoes. Before popping a lift in I would definitely make sure your body can adapted.
