Went through this last year Josh.

I was first referred to a sports medicine clinic, but that doctor gave me a BS response (stop doing what hurts and take pills), so I then went to see a PT (who himself lifts and is into sports medicine).

I should have gotten an MRI, but did not. A MRI would have let the PT know if what was wrong possibly required surgery. His stance was, we will treat it as if it does not--if it does not respond, you need to get an MRI and then be referred to a surgeon (which he wanted to avoid).

Even without that, he diagnosed my problem and put together a plan that eventually got me back into the gym again. I had to relearn how my shoulder blade was supposed to behave and strengthen my RC and a lot of other muscles.

Good luck!
