Leg Length Differences: How Chiropractic Can Help
Updated: May 8
Leg length differences, also known as leg length inequality or discrepancy, is a common condition in which one leg is longer than the other. This condition can cause a number of symptoms, including back pain, hip pain, knee pain, and uneven wear on shoes.
Leg length differences can be caused by a number of factors, including genetic factors, traumatic injuries, and developmental conditions such as scoliosis. In some cases, leg length differences may be present at birth, while in other cases they may develop over time.
Treatment for leg length differences typically involves addressing the underlying cause of the condition and attempting to correct the difference in leg length. This may involve the use of orthotic devices, such as shoe inserts or lifts, to compensate for the difference in leg length.
Chiropractic care can also play a role in the treatment of leg length differences. By realigning the spine and restoring proper spinal function, chiropractic adjustments can help to relieve pain and discomfort associated with leg length differences. In addition, chiropractic care can help to improve overall mobility and flexibility, which can be beneficial for individuals with leg length differences.
