    one of our professors once talked about short leg syndrome associated with scoliosis and how it would affect the psoas, and piriformis...and how it would affect the person..( i think it was psoas would sidebend to the opposite side of the convexity and then eventually the piriformis would tighten?) does anyone know of this or any article that talks about this....looked on OVID but couldn't find anything
