Anyone here ever had to have treatment for some sort of pelvic dysfunction? Over a year ago, I started noticing things didn’t seem quite right with my alignment, and I was very prone to injury in lower limbs (tibial stress fracture, IT band syndrome and chondromalacia patellae.)
For as long as I can remember I’ve had difficulty with rotation of my left leg (when seated, I can’t drop it down outwards to floor,) and so for months and months have been working on improving hip motility and lower-body flexibility (everything from foam-rolling to motility drills to hour-long stretching sessions) but seem to have made little progress.
If I’m honest, things seem to have gotten worse- I can suffer from extreme lower back pain (right down near base of spine) and things seem to extend right through into the upper half of my body (issues with rotation/limited movement/uneven positioning of shoulders, insane muscle tightness.)
I’ve done a load of research to try and identify what the problem could be, but have been overwhelmed with the amount of different suggestions- everything from a rotated pelvis to sacroiliac joint dysfunction, to a leg-length discrepancy, to a malformation in the ankle. My work in the gym has suffered more and more- I can barely squat or deadlift anymore because I can’t find a firm, balanced position, and benching has began to suffer (due to uneven shoulder blades.)
Some days I feel so off-balance, I can’t walk in a straight line. After finally getting to see a doctor, the X-ray has come back clear (no abnormality) and I’ve no spinal curving, so have now been referred to a physiotherapist, orthapedic and neurologist, to try and identify the problem.
Has anyone ever had any similar problems? I know there’s a lot that seems to be going on, but has anyone experienced serious issues with body alignment and managed to have it successfully treated, either through their own work or by a professional?
