Crooked Hips and Heel Lifts

My back has always had knots and minor aches. I knew that I had slight scoliosis (curved spine). Thankfully, the pain has been minimal and has not negatively impacted my life. In fact, it has been the cause of many awesome back rubs from my husband.

This week, my new chiropractor did X-rays on my back. NEWSFLASH: One side of my pelvis is fused to a vertebra. She called it a birth defect. Fascinating. I lived for twenty-eight years with a birth defect nobody knew about. As a result, my hips are not level and nerves could be annoyed.

The fix? Heel lifts in my shoe. They make my hips more level. I had never noticed that they were crooked.

You really do learn something new every day.
