Anatomical or functional leg length discrepancy?
My right pelvis is rotated posterior inferior, and it is 1/4" higher than my left on x-ray.  I have been told numerous times that my right leg is longer than my left, starting when I was about 10 and first went to the chiropractor.  The chiropractor that took the x-rays is sure that it is just a functional difference, though he did not take x-rays of legs and actually measure.  I can't understand how that could be possible.  It seems the high side should pull that leg up and be shorter.  Is it possible for it to just be a functional difference when the high hip and long leg are on the same side?
