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?
