My 16 year old daughter has noticed that her waist is higher on one side than the other. Her backbone appears perfectly straight. She always Carrys a heavy bag to school on one shoulder and wonder if that could have caused some alignment problem. She has also been suffering from severe headaches for over a year. Could this all be related?

Hi Dawn,

Yes it could all be related.

The waist height difference is probably due to a difference in the length of the bones in her legs but it is possible that she has what people sometimes call a ‘twisted pelvis’.

The stresses on her spine from either of these problems can cause muscle tightness which can cause headaches.

I’d like to examine her to see what’s going on .
