We provide a different approach to and prove a (partial) generalisation of a recent theorem on the structure of low energy solutions of the compatible two well problem in two dimensions, proved first by Lorent (for bilipschitz invertible mapping with control of order formula45) then later by by Conti, Schweizer in full generality with optimal control. More specifically we will show that a ``quantitative' two well Liouville theorem holds for the set of matrices formula47 where H is a diagonal matrix with determinant equal to 1, under a constraint on the formula53 norm of the second derivative. Our theorem is the following.

Let formula55, q> 1. Let formula59. There exists positive constants formula61 depending only on formula63, p, q such that if u satisfies the following inequalities
then there exist formula73 such that
We provide a proof of this result by use of a theorem related to the isoperimetric inequality, the approach is conceptually simpler than those previously used, however it does not given the optimal formula75 bound for (1) that has been proved (for the p=1 case) by Conti, Schweizer.
