Sagging Shoulders
Q: I have a disease called sagging shoulders. I'm about to go to the doctor about my situation. It seems that with more exertion to the shoulders due to sports, work, etc., they are sagging more and hurting deeper. Do you know anything about this type of thing?

A: The diagnosis of "sagging" shoulders could be a number of things-all of which are treated differently. Be sure to get the proper medical diagnosis. If you have subluxating (or loose) or loose shoulders, this may need aggressive rehab and rarely surgery. Other more rare disorders include the congenital absence of the clavicle, nerve injury at birth resulting in paralysis or weakness of several muscles of the shoulder-which will lead to sagging. Further information is really needed to correctly address your concerns.
