    My back itself isn't bad, I have only a slight hunch, but my left shoulder seems to be 'considerably' more raised than my right

    I dislocated my collar bone a few years ago

    is there anything I can do to change it?

    not thinking scoliosis

    my shoulder blades are fine, and my arms are perfectly placed against my body

    my posture is generally fine, but I'm thinking breaking my collar bone as a child is having an affect on how my shoulder sits

    my spine is fine and none of the other symptoms are present

    i doubt it's scoliosis, anything else?

    i broke one of my collar bones when i was 14 (24 now), can't remember which one but now my left shoulder sits higher than my right when standing. I don't know when that started happening, but I hope it has to do with my collar bone and not scoliosis :noes:. I've been compensating for this during the past year by concentrating on making my shoulders level and now when I look in a mirror or window or something and I wasn't thinking about it I'm sometimes struck and realize my shoulders are level. I guess just concentrate on making an effort to keep yours level :dunno:. Good luck
