Hip Surgery & Post-Op Short Leg Correction

before and after xray of post operative hip surgery short leg correction

Ignoring a Short Leg following Hip Surgery may be the reason you’re still in pain!

Whether the hip surgery itself is the cause of a short leg is irrelevant, but the potential clearly exists.

It’s Important to identify and correct said short leg sooner than later.

Starting physical therapy with a Short Leg? Huge waste of time!

Walking around with a short leg is stressful!

Musculature adaptations related to the short leg constantly stress the hip and lower extremity with every step.

Stress Retards Healing!

Granted, someone just released for Physical Therapy will begin their rehab cautiously, but Wear & Tear Stress due to a short leg can make the difference between long-term success and chronic pain.

When you want the BEST post-operative long-term outcome, check for a short leg via standing plain film x-ray.

When you have a short leg, fix it!

Here at Arizona Orthotics, we first measure the distortion then level the pelvis with the appropriately sized heel lift built directly into a MASS Posture Precision Calibrated custom foot orthotic.

Short Leg Correction Successful!

Now, the pelvis is level, wear and tear stress is eliminated, and active weight-bearing rehab can begin.

If you or someone you know has undergone hip surgery and have yet to learn whether your pelvis is level, call us today.woman giving thumbs up gestureCorrecting a structural short leg is so easy, you’ll be amazed!
