        On my left side, I seem to lift my leg more with my QL (hip rotates upward) than my hip. When I raise my left leg my back seems to squeeze inward which causes all sorts of issues on my left side and a pretty tight QL. Stretching my QL with side bends doesn’t really help because it just goes back after walking a bit.

        I started seeing a PT for about 3 weeks but she just seems to be focusing on my right side since i don’t have good balance. I think its just because my hip is so rotated when i do 1 leg squats with my right leg, while if i stand on my left, my hip rotates fine which makes me have fine stability.

        Any advice on things to stop lifting my leg with my side instead of my hip?

          Are you correcting why your hip rotates upward?
          Are you hitting your gut too?
