Limb Length Discrepancy Causes Pain

Many people have different leg lengths of around 1/4 inch or more. Those with very little difference might not notice anything because their body has adapted to it, while others experience pain anywhere from their lower back, hip, knee or even feet. These effects, if left untreated, will throw the body off balance and cause even more pain in these areas as well as an uneven gait and various foot and leg problems. As your body tries to compensate, it will start to affect others areas such as the pelvis and spine. [1]

See your foot doctor to determine if you have a limb length discrepancy. Simple heel lifts will make your body feel balanced and relieve the pain.
