More than 50% of people have a subtle difference in their leg lengths.

These mild variations usually do not cause problems. Similar to other conditions, the severity of leg length discrepancy can vary widely from person to person. The most common symptom is back pain, which develops when the spine has to adjust its alignment to make up for the differences between the legs.

A chiropractor is a nervous system and musculoskeletal expert who is well trained to handle conditions like leg length discrepancy. Their main goal is to help improve the overall health and wellbeing of your body. However, if you suffer from leg length discrepancy, your chiropractor will address the various misalignments he or she finds throughout your legs, hips, pelvis and spine by administering very specific chiropractic adjustments.
