Thank you for your mail, it is definately relevant, you most probably have a muscle weakness/ imbalance, could be in your glutes, core, hamstrings or quad muscles. I would suggest that you consult with a biokinetisist with a special interest in biomechnics for an assessment and treatment.Contact the biokinetic association for a bio near you
