The easiest and safest solution would be to raise your guitar to the point where your elbow stops sticking out. Otherwise, it sounds like your shoulder could use some endurance training. I know that if you do pushups with your feet raised in the air (prop them on a chair or something) you can get a pretty intense shoulder workout.
