The Adventures of Short Leg Sally

Short Leg Sally

The Adventures of Short Leg Sally – an entertaining tale about suffering and hope presented by Arizona Orthotics. 

short leg sally story-timeFrom the time Sally started walking, folks would always say…

Is Sally okay, she appears to be limping?

Her mother would sneer and reply “Sally is fine, she’s just having a bad day.

The specialists all said Sally was completely normal – two healthy feet, ankles, and legs apparently.

Yet, as Sally continued to grow, mom noticed how her upper body began to shift.

“Stand up straight Sally,” her mother would encourage.

This tongue-twister would make Sally laugh and she tried her best to follow moms advice. 

Until years later when she was older and started having pain that just wouldn’t go away.

Sally thought, “This is not okay,” and went in physical therapy.

She was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis & back pain.

According to the therapist, her hips were rotated and leg short on the left. 

In an instant she realized this is the limp folks suggested she had since she was little.

“How could I not realize this before?!”

She was upset for a moment, but quickly regained home. 

Having a great attitude, she chuckled and nicknamed herself “Short Leg Sally.”

Sally underwent extensive physical therapy.

Unfortunately her upper body remained shifted, her pelvis rotated, and pain about the same.

Not willing to give up hope just yet and settle for a lifetime of worsening pain…

Short Leg Sally began her own investigation!

Sally Learned There Are 2 Types of Short Legs.

The 1st type is when muscles pull things out of place.

The 2nd is when the bones are shorter on one side.

Sally felt that she had the 2nd type because all the therapy she had was not helping.

Sally found Dr. Dave with Arizona Orthotics who took a x-ray of her pelvis while standing.

Dr. Dave measured her short leg and explained why she was still experiencing pain.

Sally was amazed to see how easy it was to fix her short leg.

Short leg Sally told her mother what she had learned and that she’d been walking with a short leg forever.

Her mother scoffed in disbelief.

Sally showed her mother the x-ray that revealed her left short leg.

Her leg was measured short by 9mm.

Sally then showed her the 9mm heel lift from Dr. Dave and shared with joy how her pain was finally gone.

Sally’s mother then noticed that her shift was also gone and gave her a big hug.

The moral of the story: Don’t be a Sally and suffer needlessly for years with a short leg.
