I always liked reading Thucydides -- great way with words. The strong do as they will, the weak do as they must.

To your question, it's possible that your technique on cleans is off and you are using your arms and shoulders to muscle up the bar (even when light). This happened to me, causing rotator cuff tendonitis (a tear is less likely). This can be a pain to get rid of so I would suggest seeing the doctor and getting a good therapist if it doesn't go away. You also should get your clean technique checked out. Your arms are like ropes and the shoulders only shrug. It's not a curl. Hope that helps.
