Leg Length Inequality

A leg length inequality can be a significant cause of pain. The most common causes of leg length inequality are spinal scoliosis, a surgically repaired leg fracture, hip or knee replacement, hip arthritis, Bone Diseases (Dysplasias), or a developmental Bone Infection.

Common signs that a leg length inequality is present, is that the shoes do no wear evenly on the bottom, more specifically that one shoe is wearing out much more than the other. If a leg length inequality exists it is important that it be corrected with either a lift that is added into your shoe, a lift that is built into your orthotic or if it is significant, built right into your shoes. Our Certified Pedorthist can perform a full history and physical examination and determine if a leg length inequality is present and contributing to your pain and the best path as to correct it.
