ok, so i've never been miss flexibility...a little history:
i was born with hip dysplasia (the ball and socket aren't developed properly). it was caught at 6 months and i wore a brace for six months.
the treatment was successful; i walk normally, both legs are the same length, etc. i was a long-distance runner for years...
fast-forward to today: after having my children, i noticed i'm even less flexible than before (probably just age too), but i literally cannot touch my toes. when sitting, i cannot lean forward towards my toes at all; i can barely sit straight up.
it's like my hips are tilted leaning backwards...
anyway, who would i go see about this? chiropractor? ortho doctor? i'm just not sure where to begin. i know i'll never be gymnast-flexible, but good grief.
