My current stats:
Hey guys, I’ve been wondering for a very long time what’s “wrong” with my shoulder area. I was recently diagnosed with minor scoliosis. My scapulas are downwardly rotated and sitting quite low (checked by my father). I think I have what is called drooping shoudlers and due to that constant knots in the shoulder blade area that never seem to disappear. I also think that this is the reason for why my acromion is so protruding at my shoulders. First I thought it was a AC separation but my bones and joints were perfectly normal and healthy according to an x-ray and the orthopedic surgeon who looked at it. I found people with similar problems on other forums and people said it was incorrect scapula position that made the acromion so visible.
I also experience loud clicks in both of my shoulders but it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where from. I have a hard time to try to rotate my scapula upwards and a lat spread is almost impossible to perform. I have started doing exercises for the upward rotators, especially the upper traps as my right shoulder hangs significantly lower than my left (used to be worse). I also started to stretch my lats and pecs daily as I had problems with shoulder flexion. I also feel that my problem has gotten worse since I started working out 4 years ago. My acromion looks more protruding at my right shoulder but the bones were identical on the xray, which makes me think that something is not right.
I searched for downwardly rotated scapula and found this image which pretty much looks exactly like my problem, notice the acromion:
Notice the slope of the acromion coming from the scapula, I believe the scapula must be downwardly rotated and therefore making my ac joint more pointy and protruding.
Hopefully I can get some help and insight of my problem since I have not been able to get a clear answer. I noticed when doing overhead shrugs without weight that my upper traps get tired very fast, especially the right one. I think my upper traps look and are long and weak. This have made me a quite depressed lately as I just want to look symmetrical and normal.
