Mine isn't entirely fixed yet, but my collarbones were at a 45 degree angle, and now are at about a 15 degree angle. And the specific problems I was having needed individualized exercises--the stretches and exercises I got from well-meaning folk were exacerbating the problem because my body was compensating for imbalances and doing things wrong... Sometimes it does take a trained professional. My PRI guy is worth his weight in gold IMO. Though he does find me a bit odd for going to him since I'm not in excruciating pain like the rest of his clients...
