Holistic treatment for Leg Length Correction

Specializing in Pediatric Orthopaedic Treatments

Uneven leg length, also called leg length discrepancy, is a condition where the legs are of two different lengths because of misalignment.

Uneven leg length is of two types:

  • Structural (built from childhood)
  • Functional ( occurs with unexpected bone damage)
  • Knee flexion, asymmetrical posture, heredity, trauma, and accidents are a few causes of Uneven foot length.

    The noticeable signs of uneven leg length are knee, lower back, and hip pain on one side only, asymmetric running style, asymmetric wear and tear of shoes, etc.

    Depending upon the asymmetry from moderate to severe, if uneven leg length is left untreated it may cause issues with walking and posture that contribute to hip and back pain.

    The treatment for uneven leg length is completely dependent on the difference in leg lengths. If the difference is lower, the misalignment can be rectified with physical therapies.
