Different leg lengths can go unnoticed for years
Andrew has lectured extensively in Australia and o/s, and treated patients with, a leg length difference for many years. A problem that seems to be missed by many health professionals and can result in a huge array of postural symptoms and injuries. Andrew has a 13mm difference himself, so if you have or suspect you have a leg length difference, we are extremely experienced with managing this problem.
At Sydney Sports Podiatry, we offer comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for individuals experiencing discrepancies in leg lengths. This condition, known as leg length discrepancy (LLD), can lead to a variety of problems including pain, poor balance, and difficulty in walking or running. Our team of experts uses advanced diagnostic tools, including digital X-rays and gait analysis, to accurately measure the difference in length between your legs. Once we’ve identified the extent of the discrepancy, we develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This could include the use of custom orthotics, shoe modifications, or targeted exercises and stretches. In more severe cases, referral for surgical consultation may be considered. Through our holistic and patient-centered approach, we aim to alleviate the symptoms associated with LLD and improve your overall mobility and quality of life.
