The Cause Of The Shoulder Feels Grow Taller?
Hi I want to ask, why is my shoulder taller than a person whose height is the same as mine, there are even people who are taller than me but still my shoulders are taller than that person. Is this normal?
Good evening Ahmad, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. In the body there are known as proportions, and this varies in each age level. Proportion is the ratio of the size of the head, body, length of arms, legs, etc. in the body. Say there is a baby that is the same height as an adult, surely the proportion of the body will be different, such as the size of the head compared to a much larger body. For more convenience, see the image below.
In your case, a higher shoulder can be due to different proportions of your body, maybe a shorter neck or so on. But because we didn't see you in person, and didn't even know your age, we can't be certain whether it's something to worry about or not. But indeed generally, because you realize it yourself and not because others who see that your posture is strange, this should not be something to worry about excessively.
However, if you feel worried, our advice is that you should consult yourself directly to a general practitioner first. The doctor will try to find out your habits that might affect your posture and refer you to the appropriate specialist if it is considered that there are abnormalities that need to be corrected. Meanwhile, there is no specific thing you can do independently, just evaluate your posture when standing, sitting, and lifting things with examples of good posture on the internet, and live a healthy lifestyle. So, hopefully answering your question.
