Top 100 Biomechanical Guidelines #24: Understand the 3 Common Landmarks for Palpation in assessing Short Leg Syndrome
The 3 common landmarks used in standing evaluation of leg length discrepancies are:
Iliac Crests (top of the pelvis)
Anterior Superior Iliac Spines (front of the pelvis)
Greater Trochanters (top/side of femurs)
When performing this examination, get your eyes at the level of your hands, and have your hands or thumbs parallel with the floor.
This is Chateau Eza in Eze, France. My wife and I actually stayed here for our anniversary several years ago. If you love to travel, and have a significant other, this is an unbelievable place perched 4000 feet above the Mediterranean Sea.
