Tight hip / leg curve in spine

I recently found out I have one hip slightly higher than the other and have a mild curve in my spine. I do chiropractic treatments a couple times a week and it isnt changing anything. ( Ive been to them so much I can even tell them what is off before they start )I have had a problem for years and have seen over a dozen chiropractors with all the same general take on it...keep doing adjustments. They dont seem to want to address much for the muscle issues. I do believe there are some tight muscles in the hips (psoas quads and glutes- which I have been stretching.) There is a magic muscle trigger point some where but I cant find it. I have used an inversion table, which I did get dramatic results with (85-90 % improvement in the whole body )until my body said no thats enough. I can feel the right hip is tight and is twisted. Right si joint, piriformis muscle...I know when it all balances out from the hips everything else does too. Any suggestions?

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Valuable trainer and coach time is saved when taping is eliminated. In an independent sudy of athletes Swede-O ankle braces were chosen as most comfortable.
