Leg Length Discrepancy and Nonspecific Low Back Pain: 3-D Stereophotogrammetric Quantitative Posture Evaluation Confirms Positive Effects of Customized Heel-Lift Orthotics

Heel-lift customized orthotics with 100% LLD correction are an effective short- and long-term treatment in patients with nonspecific LBP, inducing pain symptom recession and stimulating the improvement of postural parameters without contraindications.

Indications of sole lift and foot orthoses in the management of mild idiopathic scoliosis—a review

Sole lift appeared to be indicated in the presence of certain types of functional scoliosis, and custom foot orthoses were found to reduce spinal curves in juvenile patients with mild idiopathic scolia and concomitant abnormal foot biomechanics.

Leg Length Discrepancy in College Students and Its Association with Low Back Pain: a Preliminary Study

The prevalence of LLD is commonly found in population and the prevalence is varied widely depending on the magnitude of the discrepancy, and many causes of LBP have been documented.

Indications for Lumbar Fusion in the Skeletally Mature Adolescent: How to Address Oblique Takeoff and Limb Length Discrepancy.

Although the clinical and radiographic outcomes of PSF with SSI are excellent, patients should be counseled about the impact of fusing the lumbar spine on back pain, decreased spinal mobility, and potential inability to return to athletics at the same level.

Functional Leg Length Discrepancy among Pediatric Scoliosis: A Reversible Neuromuscular Compensation from Craniocervical Junction Misalignment

It is proposed that a craniocervical junction misalignment may induce a neuromuscular imbalance leading to functional leg length discrepancy, and that re-establishing a proper alignment can result in some LLD disappearance.

The Effects of Bracing on Pelvic Parameters in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis

Bracing effects of AIS can be extended to the pelvis should retro-rotate correspondingly to TLK hypokyphosis on sagittal plane, whereas in coronal plane, pelvic obliquity was improved independently.

Leg length discrepancy (LLD) adalah suatu kondisi perbedaan panjang ekstremitas bawah. Hal ini dapat

This paper was written to review measurement technique, biomechanical compensation strategies, complication, and management of LLD from Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation point of view.

Immediate Effects of Myofascial Release on the Thoracolumbar Fascia and Osteopathic Treatment for Acute Low Back Pain on Spine Shape Parameters: A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial

MFR and OMT have an influence on fLLD and the kyphotic angle in aLBP patients and could have a regulating effect on the impaired neuromotor control of the lumbar muscles.

Correcting functional scoliosis

Reversible pelvic obliquity is a common but overlooked condition causing functional scoliosis and leg length differences that patients can be instructed to align themselves.



Low-Back Pain Associated With Leg Length Inequality

The possible association between pelvic obliquity and low- back pain is investigated in low-back pain patients and a control population and an age-related response of the postural scoliosis to shoe-raise is noted.

Leg-length inequality and low-back pain after Perthes' disease: a 28-47-year follow-up of 96 patients.

A follow-up of 96 patients with Perthes' disease was made 28-47 years after onset, and degeneration of the lumbar spine was the only factor that correlated well with low-back pain.

The effect on low back pain of shortening osteotomy for leg length inequality

The degree of low back pain was significantly reduced after the operation and theintensité of the lombalgie avait fortement diminué après l'opération.

Low-Back Pain in Transfemoral Amputees: Is There a Correlation with Static or Dynamic Leg-Length Discrepancy?

This study calls into question whether LLD plays a significant role in persistence of low-back pain in transfemoral amputees in TFA.

Lumbar Spine Structural Changes Associated With Leg Length Inequality

Radiographic asymmetric structural changes in the lumbar spine are described in nonacute low-back-pain patients with a leg length difference of greater than 9 mm and no leglength difference (0-3 mm).

Clinical Symptoms and Biomechanics of Lumbar Spine and Hip Joint in Leg Length Inequality

In the majority of cases, the chronic or recurrent sciatic pain and unilateral hip symptoms occurred on the side of the longer lower extremity, and when correcting the leg length inequality simply with an adequate shoe lift, a permanent and mostly complete alleviation of symptoms was achieved.
