Unaligned Hip

Post by jamezgt » Sun Aug 03, 2008 12:20 am

Hey guys - new to the forums.

I have an unaligned hip and was curious on what could be causing this problem. Any suggestions?

That's pretty vague. What do you mean by "unaligned hip." It sounds like something that needs a medical diagnosis.

Basically a dropped hip. My ASIS aren't completely aligned and it's most likely due to tight muscles that were compensating for other muscles. Just curious on what those muscles could be

I understand what you mean now. There were some links someone posted about posture issues. I think this was the main one. It addresses various posture issues.

Now if this was caused by an injury, than it is something you need medical attention for.

Unless you are actually a horse, I bet it's a posture thing. Do you have a really big wallet in your back pocket maybe?

Nope, I keep my wallet in my front pocket just in case it pinches my siatic nerve =]

I think it's due to a collasped arch or a muscle inbalance down there
