In brief: Get diagnosis first

Be efficient, and get answers as to why your injury did not fully heal.
Not uncommon is an injury to the brachial plexus from shoulder strap, with eventual scarring, called thoracic outlet syndrome. Therapy does help, but is a specific approach, such as felderkreis work. Both EMG and ultrasound studies could pin down precise mechanism. If you have tos, about 85% success with conservative rx.
