    One shoulder higher than the other? (serious please)

    I just joined my gym about a week ago, so I got one free consultation with a personal trainer. While he was measuring my height/weight he said that he noticed my left shoulder is a bit higher than the other. I honestly think this is bs.

    Nobody has ever mentioned this to me before, not even my weight training teacher at school, who I have had for just over a year. I'd like to give him a bit more credit than that. My doctor has never mentioned this to me either. I would assume that if one shoulder was higher than the other, then my doctor would mention it.

    I'll go ask a few other people what they think, including my doctor.

    If they really are uneven, what would the consequences be? And how would I go about correcting it?

    I would post a pic, but I don't have a digital camera or scanner.

    All serious help is appreciated. Thanks.

    btw it could be temporary.. i slept on my neck wrong and there was like a 2 inch difference in each shoulder for about 3 days. If you notice it for a long time its not a good thing.

    x2

    One of my shoulders is higher than the other because I have a 12 degree curve in my spine = scoliosis

    If it doesn't bother you, then don't worry about it. There aren't really any consequences unless you have severe scoliosis which you would know by now - in which case you get a body brace and all that fun stuff.

    Use a tennis ball against a wall and do some rolling around to it to work out the kinks and kots on your back.

    Also strech your hip flexors...

    i cbf explaining it but you probably have a massive overall imbalancement starting in the legs.

    Yea, he asked me if I had any shoulder injuries. I haven't really had any injuries period, so it can't be that.

    I kind of doubt that it is a serious problem, since I would have know by now, and would have probably been having some pain, but there is nothing.

    I suppose it may be a leg imbalance, but it would have to be REALLY huge right? I haven't been lifting for all that long.

    I'll go to see my doctor anyway, to be safe. Thanks.

    Could be that your right shoulder is just lower than your left. That would mean that you either have bad posture or the ligaments/tendons in your right shoulder are looser than in your left.

    Not really. Maybe if I'm taking my backpack from the front door to my room, or something like that, but not for long periods of time, like when going to school.

    Did you ever have scoliosis tests in school? When they make you put on a bathing suit and bend over so they can check your spine?
