The Elusive Short Leg

The Elusive Short Leg - 3 different pics - short leg right, normal, short leg left

The Elusive Short Leg is the one most folks aren’t looking for.

This includes your chiropractic physician, physical therapist, medical doctor, Pilates instructor, personal trainer, massage therapist, and others who simply remain unaware. 

Pain that’s been around “forever” only on one side despite years of therapy and treatment?

Chronic pain ever since that hip or knee surgery years ago?

You’re not alone!

Imagine treating for a functional short leg when it’s not.

flushing money down the toiletWhat a complete waste of time & money!

Luckily, there’s a real easy way to know if it’s the elusive structural short leg versus the more commonly seen functional.

The structural short leg is especially difficult to find without proper training or the awareness that it even exists.

Well it does and we’re going to help you catch it, so let’s begin.

Here’s How You Can Easily Identify The Elusive Short Leg

Observation – look down at your feet – look at your posture – AND consider the results of your treatment over the years. 

An unlevel foundation foundation wreaks havoc all the way up.

Is one foot deformed more than the opposite side?

Bunion only on one side?

Is your posture a mess?

Does your mid-body shift to one side and your head tilt to the other?

Is your pelvis rotated?

Did one hip or knee “wear out” faster than the opposite side?

Despite numerous treatments, perhaps even surgery, does the short leg “keep coming back?”

All of the above are signs of the elusive short leg.

Still not sure if your short leg is Functional OR Structural?

We’re here to help.

X-ray is the gold standard for a valid and reliable evaluation of the elusive structural short leg.

Here at Arizona Orthotics we use standardized protocols for an accurate measurement of the discrepancy.

We’re then able to offer solutions for correction specific to you.

In many instances, those suffering for years find relief as soon at the unleveling stress is corrected.

There is hope!
