  1. Results may be temporary
  2. The short leg may not due to muscle imbalance
  3. Help is available elsewhere

Is the short leg structural?

Perhaps it’s functional

If this remains unknown, it’s worth finding out.

CORRECT the CAUSE of the short leg or else it tends to stay short – typically forever.

Not a good long term scenario considering the inherent wear-and-tear stress caused by such an unleveling.

Consider the stress of walking with one shoe or sandal only.

Walk this way for the next 12 months or 5 years or, for some, a lifetime.

“HOW SHORT IS MY LEG?!”

Luckily, this can be visualized & measured with a standing x-ray. 

When it’s there, it’s obvious, and referred to as a Structural Short Leg. 

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