:Since last December, if I try to walk more than 2 blocks, the muscle in my upper left buttock starts to hurt and cramp but will stop once I quit walking. My MRI shows a small amount of stenosis and a little arthritis but nothing definitive to be causing this much pain. My chiro says something about muscle imbalance but I've never heard of this. I've gone down several roads in trying to find a cure for this and am getting discouraged. I was born w/spina bifida and have some scoliosis but have always been pretty active all my life but that has stopped because of this. Anyone experienced anything similar?

sharon's comment: YES YES YES YES YES YES YES there is such a thing, and many of us suffer pains from this very problem. Some individuals' bodies are more resilient at "restabilizing" the postural muscles etc. I am living proof that a muscle imbalance, if left for too long can reek HELL on your life and body. Whoever thinks there is not such a thing is a bonehead and they aren't smart enough to realize that we are living in a day and age where day in and day out 90% of us are placing unnecessary and varied types of postural stress on our bodies. I think only "lucky" people would ask that question because the rest of us suffer from and understand the extremely frustrating physical symptoms . I know this because of a health problem I've been dealing with for the past two years!! I know this to be a fact and I'll stand by it any day. I'm not even 19!!!!
