Arthralgia: You are too young to be old, A leg short by less than 1 inch is within normal. Hip impingement is worrisome for gung ho athletes. If you are obese loose weight. Best Rx for low back pain is exercise. What you need is exercise (if doc OKs it) if only to bring out more specific complaints. No passive PT. Pilates could be a start. A trainer is good. Build your stamina and get well.
