Leg Length Discrepancy

Thousands of people throughout the world are currently suffering from a leg length discrepancy. This means that one leg is longer than the other. This can be caused by a number of factors, however the most concerning aspects of such a condition are the consequences it can have on your body later on in life. These include, permanent bending of the spine, ligamant damage, spinal nerve damage, chronic muscle pain.. the list goes on.

Leg length discrepancyLeg length discrepancy can range from being a minor to very significant problem depending on the actual discrepancy involved. The difference between the unequal lengths is commonly between 1cm and 4cm. The larger the discrepancy, the more adverse the effects will be. The most serious adverse effect being one side of the body growing faster than the other, also known as hemi hypertrophy. However, it is usually the case that people with a larger leg length discrepancy suffer less from their problem, because it is easily recognizable to themselves and in which case they will do something about it, eliminating the problem. People with a less of an obvious and seemingly inconsequential discrepancy usually suffer more, this is because they fail to recognize their unequal leg lengths and mistakenly think their problems such as foot pain or back are caused by other reasons. So what can be done to eliminate leg length discrepancy and how can we check if we have an unequal leg length?

Only a trained professional can diagnose you with leg length discrepancy. Unless the situation is obvious, it is very difficult for anyone to diagnose themselves, even if they suspect it from relevant symptoms. If limb discrepancy is diagnosed, the most common answer for treatment is simple, heel lifts. These heel lifts are placed inside the users shoe where the heel would rest. This literally adjusts the height of the shorter leg so that when it comes to rest on top of the heel lift, the legs are as though they are of equal length, instantly eliminating the problems of limb length discrepancy.

The insoles are available in many different sizes and are used by many people patients recommended by health professionals across the world. Due to the heel lengths being adjustable, they can be altered to suit the leg length discrepancy of almost anyone who is diagnosed with the condition.
