I'm a female, early 20s. This is not in response to acute trauma - I've had this as long as I can remember ... maybe it's just gotten gradually worse, not sure. For the record, this is a completely FUNCTIONAL issue. I've already had an xray and both legs are exactly the same length anatomically.
Here's the issue. Right leg is short. I stand with my left leg totally straight and my right leg completely off the ground. I'm also super inflexible (always been). I'm a good 1/2 foot away from my toes when I stand up and try to touch my toes. I'm pretty sure my hip flexors are damn tight as well because when I was very young (~5-6 yrs old) I couldn't even sit down on the ground without feeling too tight and I actually went to O.T. (occup. therapy) as a child. I also try to bend my leg and hold my knee and push it into my chest and I'm about a foot away if that's any indication as another hip flexor test.
What can I do to bring down my short leg? It's causing scolosis in my spine and very uneven shoulders if I stand without putting my right foot on extreme tippy toes. I went to a chiropractor a few times and he straightened out my pelvis and just told me to lay down and do hamstring stretches, which I feel wasn't even doing much, and I've stopped doing those anyway because I don't want to waste my time. My hamstrings are very tight, if that matters. For example when I try to stretch them and bring them down towards me, I can barely make my legs perpendicular to the ceiling.
Any help? I'm very overwhelmed and don't know what to do
