I lifted a tv and hurt my upper left shoulder- went to a chiropractor and he helped with my neck but do I need a massage therapist for my shoulder?

In brief: Try

A massage therapist may help, however, if there was muscle strain you may need rest.
If there was a more severe injury, you might want to see a doctor or a physical therapist. Acupuncture may also help.

Orthopedists and physiciatrists may be particularly helpful.

In brief: Depends

You may have strained your rotator cuff or simply your neck with radiated pain from nerve pinching.
You should see an orthopedic specialist if the discomfort or dysfunction persists and follow the pathway recommended. You could need physical therapy, steroid injections, rest, and perhaps surgery.
