Re: Tight hip / leg curve in spine

You probably need a heal lift on the short side, this will balance the pelvis, help straighten the curve in the lumbar spine and take the tension off the psoas muscle that is torquing you hip and pelvis. Adjustments are benficial but these chiropractors aren't addressing whats going on. The doctor needs to determine if you have a functional short leg or a structural short leg. Once this is done, the doctor will know whether to use a heel lift as a permanent fix or a temporary one.
