    Well that is great, but how do you fix it.

    coracoid ligament stretches are beneficial; results depend on how advanced the condition which is determined by degree of decreased active and passive range of motion; this is best assessed by a Physical Therapist or Chiropractor that includes therapeutic practices as the shoulder is complex.
