I am 3 months post op of a fusion in my lumbar spine. I have been back to work for 6 weeks now and I get pains shooting down my right leg still. So my surgeon sent me to the physical therapist. While she was examining me, she said that my right hip is slightly higher than my left hip and that is why I get the pain in my legs and that it can be fixed in therapy.
I am not be the smartest tool in the shed about back and bone structures and all that, so I am confused on how physical therapy can adjust hips being misaligned and why did my pcp not see this in the xrays in the beginning. I have always kind of walked with a waddle but I figured that it was because of my back.
This is new to me so if anyone knows anything about this can you give me some insight on what I have to look forward to or any advice on what I should do?
