Short Leg Syndrome: When Standing, Correct with A Magazine under the Short Side
Blogging on Monday is Photo of the Week
Statistically, 80% of us have a short leg. That Short Leg can cause back, hip, knee, and foot/ankle pain. Standing is by far the most stressful of activities most of us do in a normal day. Placing a book, magazine, etc under the short leg even when we are barefoot or in flip flops can provide excellent relief. This nice patient not only agreed to have his photo taken, he also emphasized at his appt how he had discovered this. I had prescribed lifts his shoes to correct his short leg, but 50% plus he did not wear shoes and was having significant pain. Boy do I have smart patients who can think outside the box!!
