    Over the past 5 years, I've had a rt hip replacement as well as joint replacements & pins in both feet. Left Achilles tendon was altered resulting in diminished calf muscle. Last year, was diagnosed with post-tibular tendonitis(sp)? (flat feet) and disc problems and having severe balance problems not corrected completely with orthotics. Without a whole lot of x-rays and studies, it appears that I need an alignment. There's a fist size dent in my right hip area where muscle was removed to get to the bone area and my left calf is half the size of my rt one. Any suggestions on how to get some structural balance back and where to start?

    I often refer patients to physical medicine doctors. They are physicians who have special expertise in rehabilitation.

    Hi Rosemarym,

    I'm responding to let you know that specific doctor recommendations cannot be made on our boards. I hope you find what you're looking for, now that you know what to look for.

    Let us know how it goes for you.
