remediating leg length imbalance through custom orthotics at Van Ness Chiropractic

Leg Length Imbalance And Back Pain

Leg length imbalance can be structural or functional. Structural leg length imbalance is due to anatomical causes, such as unequal growth rates or fractures. More common is functional leg length imbalance, resulting from biomechanical stress. The most common cause of a functional leg length imbalance is excessive pronation (foot rolling in) which produces a shorter limb.  During walking or exercise, the foot will overpronate, causing excessive rotation of the entire lower extremity. The increased forces travel to the pelvis, affecting the sacroiliac (SI) joint.  

Restoring Leg Length Balance

Research confirms correlation of pain and leg length imbalance in 79-89% of patients. Symptoms include chronic or recurrent sciatic, hip, and lower back pain.  When weight falls abnormally on the musculoskeletal system, serious consequences occur. As exhaustion and strain on the body increases, a cycle of muscle fatigue and spinal stress is created.  Restoring leg length balance through custom foot orthotics can improve your body’s natural coordination, postural alignment, and balance.  

To see if you’re a candidate for custom foot orthotics, ask us for a leg length assessment and complimentary digital foot scan on your next office visit.   Additionally, if you currently have custom foot orthotics that are over one year old it’s time for an updated scan.  For more information on orthotics and chiropractic treatment visit:  https://www.vannesschiro.com/services/custom-orthotics/
