Tyler, this is an interesting question - whether it is better to correct the imbalance and possibly take a performance hit, or to leave well enough alone. There is research that indicates that left-right imbalances in strength and flexibility are better predictors of injury than bilateral weakness and / or inflexibility. Long term it seems to make sense to correct the imbalance, but expect to need some time to adjust to the balanced body.

Do you know if the sprinter you mentioned got back to her original times, and if so, how long did that take?
