Health tip of the day from Dr. Jernigan: Mothers the world over admonish their children to “Hold your shoulders back!” The fact is that the rolled in shoulders is a sign of a weak thyroid.

I see this in many teenagers (and adults), the chest looks caved in as the shoulders round in, making the palms of the hands face back as they walk. They appear lethargic and dull.

The thyroid shares the same circuit with the Teres Minor muscle. This is the muscle that holds the shoulders back so when the thyroid is weak so is this muscle. Strengthen the thyroid and the muscle will naturally hold the shoulders in their normal posture.
