Here’s an easy leg alignment check you can do at home. Stand in front of a full length mirror. Lift one leg as high as you comfortably can with the knee bent and the foot flexed up towards the ceiling, it a tall marching stance. Look at the alignment of the thigh, knee and foot. Do they naturally line up straight with each other or does the thigh drop in and the foot swing out? Now check the other side. Does it look the same? These kinds of misalignment can cause all kinds of problems and are easy to fix once you find the problem.
