Hip/SI out?

Just wondering if anyone might have any suggestions while I try and come up with an equine therapist able to make it to my area.

I have a young mare who recently got a hind leg stuck in something (how and why I'm not sure.. found her scraped up,but standing quietly)

To look at her (I'll try for photos later today) she seems to be uneven over the croup (wasn't before the incident), the right side is higher at her "bump". She seems sound enough when she moves, on the lunge she's got a nice even gait, but she's not really reaching through as well as normal, and we had two misses on the right canter lead when we first tried.

She's also a little touchier than normal when I get on and ride. Good at a walk, OK at the trot, the canter just "ain't going to happen sister". This is normally a very forward, willing mare - so out of the normal for her.

Now, obviously, I'm not qualified to make the adjustment for her, but I'm wonding if anyone knows any exercises I can do with her that might help her get things put back to normal on her own?
