Lifts for Short Leg help Hamstring and Low Back Pain

Here are two 1/8 inch lifts under the patient’s left foot. The reason I highlight this is that the patient presented for biomechanical assessment with chronic low back, hamstring, right jumper’s knee and foot pain. In my evaluation, he had mild pronation but significant limb dominance associated with short leg syndrome. Standing evaluation noted 3/8 inch short left. Our follow up today after 2 months reveal complete resolution of hamstring and low back symptoms, and no change in knee symptoms.
