What to do for having one shoulder lower than the other that causes pain in shoulder/neck?

Hi, I have one shoulder lower than the other, i have been playing badminton for the last few month but the pain and the sunken shoulder is the opposite side. Is this just shoulder/neck pain through overdoing it, I had a frozen shouldet around 8 years ago, can t remember which side though. Hope you can help.

Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
This needs to be examined by an orthopaedic surgeon because different levels of the 2 shoulders can be due to SPINE PATHOLOGY ( like SCOLIOSIS ) which needs to be assessed clinically.
If there is Scoliosiss, then i advice u to take an x ray of the spine ( AP & LAT ) to evaluate the degree.If

If there is no spine pathology , then this can be ignored if this is not causing any symptoms .Your pain is due to STRAIN OF ROTATOR CUFF rather than due to different level of the shoulders.
Hope i have answered your question
