My experience of (English) pads like this is they can work well if
(i) your saddle width is correct to begin with
(ii) the horse is level side to side and
(iii) you don't expect miracles
The fact one shoulder gets sore suggests either horse or saddle are unlevel to begin with (or occasional the rider is). I'd ask the chiro what he or she thinks, and have your saddle checked.
Best of luck.
