Fix Problems with Your Gait Due To Leg
A leg length discrepancy can be caused by several factors. Some people are simply born with one leg longer than the other. Other times, it can be cause by a leg fracture or another injury in either the leg itself or the hips. Diseases of the bone such as osteomyelitis can also cause one leg to be shorter than the other.
This is not always an obvious condition to diagnose. Some symptoms include a shoulder tilting to one side, gait problems, or pain in the back of the hip, knee, or ankle. If you believe you have gait problems in St. Catharines our pedorthists can help.
