Will rolled shoulders stunt my growth?

User Profile
Im a teenaged boy and I have rolled shoulders. I noticed this a couple months ago but didn't think much about it. I did grow within those couple months, maybe an inch, but recently its gotten worse and I feel like I'm shrinking slowly. Is this making me shorter, or will it make me stop growing? Will this stunt my growth? How can I fix it?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Rolled shoulder does not stop or stunt the growth. Get it analysed and evaluated by an orthopaedic expert and let them decide what is best for you.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
