PELVIC TORSION: ACQUIRED LEG LENGTHS ARE GENERALLY SECONDARY TO A PELVIC IMBALANCE FROM FALLS TO AWKWARD STEPS. THIS CREATES MUSCLE IMBALANCES AND SPASMS.

May be acquired: instead of congenital. See your ortho for good evaluation to understand why this happened. The hemipelvis can rotate from trauma or some type of exercise and cause limb length discrepancy. Physiotherapy may be very helpful
