Exercises To Correct One Shoulder Higher Than The Other
Can weight lifting correct very mild scoliosis? My pcp suggested this. One shoulder is about 1 inch higher than the other. Exercise suggestions?
Scoliosis: It is highly unlikely that weightlifting could correct mild scoliosis at your age. The ligaments that are holding the spine in the scoliotic position are fixed in this position and this will not change from bodybuilding. If you are concerned, i would suggest that you see a scoliosis specialist for appropriate recommendations. ...Read more

Your bite relationship descending down, feet ascending up, or hips both directions. You may have one, any combination, or rarely all three. Tx may involve a TMJ dentist, chiropractor/physical therapist, and/or foot orthotics. Other areas out of alignmt. ...Read more

I believe to have a rotator cuff tear( currently deployed cannot see a professional). Why is one shoulder lower and how can I correct it? Thank you
Cuff strengthening: Try your best to maintain a full range of shoulder motion. With your arm bent at a right angle (90 degrees) raise your arms upward from your side. Have a friend provide some resistance to raising your arm too. Rotator cuff tear is not present if no pain with resistance. Pain with resistance may be either an inflamed rotator cuff, partial thickness tear or small full tear. Phys therapy if possible. ...Read more

What do you think is the most effective exercise to strengthen a shoulder that keeps dislocating?
Suggestion: Assuming that you suffer from anterior dislocations, i would recommend you look at the thrower's 10 program. Concentrate on the exercises for shoulder... If you are doing push-ups, avoid going deeper than 90 degrees at the elbow since this will put your shoulder in a vulnerable position for dislocation. Avoid tricep dips for sure! if conservative treatments do not work, you may need surgery. ...Read more
Is it normal for your shoulder to be more forward and higher than the other when it wasn't before?
Not really.: If your shoulders were previously equal you need to see your doctor and get checked for scoliosis. As the spine curves during puberty one shoulder will appear higher. This needs to be checked soon so a treatment plan including wearing a brace can be started while there is time to fix it easier before puberty ends. ...Read more

Shoulder pain: While weightlifting could be from the acromioclavicular joint, the rotator cuff, the glenohumeral joint or a combination of all three. First proper mechanics are needed. Second one must make certain that there not any underlying issues. Finally often reducing the weight helps. And spending some time strengthening the smaller muscles of the shoulder girdle such as building up rotators and the biceps and triceps and the trapezius. ...Read more
Safe exercises: For an anterior dislocation after a few days of rest and immobilization start with pendulum exercises and shrugs. Over the next few weeks increase the range of motion. Use a broomstick held in front of the body and move it side to side then upwards to the shoulder level and finally overhead. Always avoid positions that reproduce the sense of instability. Next, start gradual resistance exercises. ...Read more
It depends: Shoulder rehab is sometimes painful, but without knowing the details of your problem or rehab protocol, its difficult to answer this question.
