Hip Question

For a few years now (I am only 20), i have been struggling with chronic back tightness and pain. After many failed chiropractor sessions and stretching exercises, I've realized that the whole problem resides in my right hip. My righ leg, I've noticed, feels a little shorter than my left, with the hip hiked a little higher. The right leg feels like more of a hanging attatchment than my left leg, and I have a lot less control over its movements and balance. I realize that this is because the hip (glutes, flexor) is tight, but I can't find a good way to loosen it. I can't bend my right leg over my left (my hip just twists in a really weird way) so I can't do many of the typical stretches effectively. When I do Yoga, I feel like i only loosen the left side of my body, and increase the discrepancy.

Any advice appreciated, really have been struggling with this issue, and want to be on the path to recovery.
