3 Things Your Physical Therapist May Never Tell You About Your Short Leg

say what?!
  1. Your physical therapy results may be temporary
  2. Your leg short is not caused by muscle imbalance
  3. Help is available elsewhere

Is your short leg structural?

If you don’t know, it’s worth finding out.

If you DO NOT CORRECT the CAUSE of a problem, it sticks with you – typically forever.

You grew asymmetrically, meaning your leg just so happens to be shorter on one side.

Luckily, this can be visualized & measured with a standing x-ray – it’s called a Structural Short Leg.

On the other hand, a Functional Short Leg responds incredibly well to physical therapy since the cause is muscle imbalance.

Since physical therapy does not magically help bones grow in length, physical therapy has no long term potential for therapeutic gain meaning it’s not only temporary, it’s medically unnecessary!

Help for your structural short leg is available right here locally at Arizona Orthotics.

In only 1 visit, we’ll identify the presence of this type of short leg and discuss your correction options.

Don’t continue hobbling around with a short leg unnecessarily when help is just a phone call away.
