Brodie dives into a 2005 review
paper by Gary A Knutson titled:
'Anatomic and functional leg-length inequality: A review and
recommendation for clinical decision-making'.
In part 1 of this 2 parter, Brodie
will talk about:
- The prevalence of leg-length difference: How common
is it amongst the population, and out of those with a leg
difference, what is the average in discrepancy?
- The effects of lower leg discrepancy: If one were to
have a difference in leg length, does this lead to pain? Does it
lead to postural defects? What are the compensations that are
- How much of a lower leg difference is clinically
significant? If someone where to present with pain, dysfunction and
disability due to different leg lengths, how large does the
difference need to be?
Brodie then summarises the episode and includes his perspective
on the relevance within the running community.
