Question regarding scoliosis and leg length?
So my chiropractor told me I have Scoliosis and a tilted pelvis. He said I needed an 8 mm heel lift. So I was wearing one for a few weeks. I didn't wear it at home though. Every time I took it off I could feel my step was off. But then I started getting hip pain in the leg that had the heel lift- And major leg cramps at night. I told him I think it's the heel lift and he said it isn't. He said it's only 8 mm and wouldn't cause that. It must be something I'm doing. Well, I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary. My workouts are the same. So I decided to go a few days without it. My hip feels totally better and my upper spine is now bothering me. LOL.
So I'm not sure. He said he could tell my from my x rays (which was only pelvis and spine) that one leg was shorter. I could never tell I had one leg shorter all my life and was active all growing up. I had three kids... I think this whole thing began after giving birth to all of them. Is that possible? And working out has made it worse because I was doing aggressive exercises that compromised my low back?
Any thoughts are greatly apprecited. I just didn't know if having a tilted pelvis and mild scoliosis means I automatically have legs different lengths or there could be some other underlying condition that is causing these two things and I don't need a heel lift.
