I’ve been diagnosed with SI joint dysfunction and that my pelvis on my right side is higher than my left side which is causing me scoliosis and lumbar facet syndrome. I’ve had low back pain for the last 6 months and doesn’t seem to be getting much better. Currently im stretching, foam rolling and using a lacrosse ball and trying to strengthen glutes/abs/hammys/hips.
I seem to be more prone to injury, I have pain in my high hamstring (Seems to go away if I don’t any running, but when i run I get bad pain afterwards. Thinking it could be my running form?)
And I think i sprained my hip muscle yesterday from using the ab roller.
Any suggestions what I could be doing wrong or how to fix it?

The musculature around the hip may be tight. I know I get hip impingement sometimes due to a femur fracture back I sustained in high school. Trying doing soft tissue mobilization on the TFL, glute muscles, IT band, quadratus lumborum and groin area. Then work on external and internal rotation of the hip, getting the hip set back in the capsule correctly and also try to do some downstream and upstream work like rolling your quads and your back, intercostals etc.
