Q. My 6 month old dog was running slammed into a wall build of railroad ties to his shoulder. X rays came back ok but hes still in pain and can't walk

A. If there was not fracture on the x-ray then most likely your dog is lame due to muscles or/and joint trauma. You should rest your dog for the next few days, give him pain killers as I assume your vet prescribed pain medications for him and then take him back to your vets for re-evaluation.
