any one else had this?
i woke up with my shoulders kinda hanging there, no pain.
and my neck clicks now when i walk, right up high. also who measures curvature? when i swim they click with every stroke. i am maybe just about extra mobile because i been sick the last couple of months.


  • heck,

    When you ask about curvature, I assume you mean curvature of the spine. An orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon usually does the measuring off a radiographic study. Some radiologists will read the film also, but the surgeons usually measure it again.

    Whe you speak of your clavicles (collar bones), is it a problem where they connect to the sternum (breast plate) or over the shoulder at the acrmioclavicular(AC) joint? You can get tears of the ligaments at either end (though it is more common over the shoulder) and some disease processes (inflammatory and collagen) can also affect those joints. Clicking within joints is not uncommon, even in "normal" joints.

    If you are concerned, or it becomes painful, discuss it with your physician.

  • it is my cervical near my breast bone at the front and now also in my shoulder where it joins to the arm. saw a physio, she had never seen it before, but thinks it maybe my scoliosis. it hurts to lie on my side a bit. i saw a chiro once who interrupted my normal list on one side and made my shoulders straight. the physio gave excises to grow so more muscle :). i am wondering if i should go back to chiro. but slightly skeptical as she promoted nothing but instability in my lower back.
    it just looks a bit freakie you can see the whole collar bone lift up, go forward point out and come back in. i should say i dont like this physio. i normally see another one, and this one missed a few things in my lower back. and that is being polite. i feel my back curve more now, i guess compensating for the spony at l5.
