Physical therapists measure both sides from anterior superior iliac spine to medial malleolus - Back pain and scoliosis require careful review of diagnostic techniques.
Two most often overlooked etiologies are leg length discrepancies and smaller hemipelvis. Having a Small Hemipelvis means that one half of the pelvis is slightly smaller than the other. When you sit, you sit on two bones at the bottom of your pelvis - your "sit bones", technically called the Ischium on both sides.
Like a short leg, a Small Hemipelvis means that the Ischium on one side is higher than the other, causing the base of the spine to tilt, especially when sitting.
This is the chiropractic technique to falsely lead you to receiving lumbar adjustments that can never correct leg length nor hip discrepancies. DO NOT LET Chiropractors FOOL YOU!
Chiropractors will crack your back and say, "See, your ankles now match." In reality they have dropped your hip to even your leg lengths.
Has ANY chiropractor EVER ruled in/out that your back pain/scoliosis may be caused by unequal lower limbs or pelvic bones that you have inherited?!
Leg length discrepancies:
anatomical - genetics. Can be short leg bone or smaller unilateral hemipelvis
accident - broken leg bone regrows longer
torsional - pelvic alignment or unilateral tight psoas
functional - nonosseous shortening of soft tissue
environmental - chronic running on uneven ground
When you have any doubt see a physical therapist for a proper evaluation.
