Our user asked: "Hello, thank you for reading this. I am a 22 year old female who is suffering from what I strongly believe to be both upper crossed syndrome AND lower crossed syndrome. Is it possible to be afflicted with both upper and lower muscle imbalances at the same time? For the past 3 1/2 years I've had disfunction in hip joint and knees, as well as neck joint disfunction & pain, pain between my shoulder blades, back pain, and jaw pain. One side of my neck muscles feel tight (sometimes painfully so) and the other feels the opposite. The tightness in one side makes my pectoral muscles hurt and make clicking feelings. Am I correct that this is due to muscle imbalance, and if so, what do I do? Should I see a chiropractor, or is this something corrected by physical therapy? Your insight would be immensely appreciated!"
 
Ask a PT Response: "Yes, it could be possible to have both. Without physically examining you, it would be difficult to determine if you truly have an imbalance. A physical therapist would definitely be able to help you out over a chiropractor especially if you have tightness and weakness which could be contributing to your condition. Best of luck to you."
