What is the usual fix for pelvic torsion, if the pelvis leftside is forward and right, is backwards the left leg would be shorter?
Left hamstring becomes tighter
Left hip becomes more flexible mainly but not the psoas
Left glute max inhibits/weakens
QL tigther (strong adhesions they are hard to break up
Erector spinae become tighter (strong adhesions they are hard to break up
Left hamstring more flexible
More msucle mass in Quad and Glute max
Right hip tighter ( illacus, rectus femus
activated, stronger glute max
When walking heel strike is noticeable and blisters occur, trainers also created a hole/dent in the heel
Does that sound about right when there is pelvis torsion?

I am not an expert, but I may be dealing with the same issue but on the opposite side. My right side is twisted forward and thus my left side is twisted back.I am attributing my issue with a tight T-spine (on right side) and internally rotated shoulders That translates to a tight Rightside QL, which might be the main problem and thus leads to the list below.Left side (back story with me is I think I have a hernia in my left quad) I would imagine that I would have compensation issues with it but Roop and the gang don’t think so.Left hamstring becomes tighterLeft hip SEEMS more flexible especially with knee tracking on outside of pinky toe, however, my left side external rotation is lacking.Left glute max inhibits/weakens as well.QL is not as tight as my right sideErector spinae seems pretty clean for me, I can have a peanut with a 45lb plate without any pain.Right sideRight hamstring more flexibleMore muscle mass in Quad and glute maxRight hip is tighter. I can’t speak for my illacus, but I do gut smash with the supernova and then put lacrosse ball on ql.Activated, stronger glute max as well.I don’t heel strike mainly because I am very light and careful on my feet.

Do you happen to have a shorter leg and if so what leg?
I’m just having a guess to what side mine is.. I found out either my left side is forward or back, due to a bike fit I had and it was picked up in the retul bike fit
Im going to have a guess if the pelvis is twisted, left side back, right side forward, the reason why its hard to activate the left glute is because its stuck back, when we force the left side to even up the glute has to activate, it just takes longer to get the nerves to recognize the pattern
But your right QL is tighter, whereas my left side is tigther.. but could be some other dysfunction you or me have..
The reason for my erectors are due to cycling, with the flexion probably what irriates the QL and made it tighter.. I am hypermobile i can flex and extend my back alot I can do the limbo at a low level probably 60-75 degrees of extension same with flexion.

The side that is backwards would be the shorter leg? This is why my QL could become tighter but it doesn’t answer yours
