Lumbar Scoliosis & Uneven Hips...

Hi all.

I have been working out heavily lately and have been looking at my body more so during this time period...and I have noticed that I have uneven hips. I went to a chiropractor and they took X-Rays of my lower spine, I have an 8 degree tilt of my spine, and it causes my right hip to be 17mm higher than my left hip.

We measured my legs at the chiropractor office and my right leg is 39 1/2" and my left leg is 39 3/4"...that doesn't seem like much of a difference to me...certainly not enough to cause such a drastic hip difference.

They gave me a 12mm shoe lift (the largest you can get) to wear under my left heel. What I don't understand is why do I need to wear this if my legs are pretty much the exact same length. Is there ANY way to rotate/align my pelvis so my hips are not so jacked up?

I am 24, 6'5", 195 lbs athletic build (if it matters)
