Leg length discrepancy, a condition where the legs are of unequal lengths, is very common. Up to a majority of individuals have leg length discrepancy, although with an average discrepancy of less than 1.1cm, for most it won't be a major problem. However, even minor imbalances can become problematic when the legs come under a lot of stress, such as during running.

Leg Length Discrepancy is a condition that involves the legs having a distinct difference in individual length. With the longer leg, usually elegantly referred to as “the big leg” being dominant, the shorter “little” leg struggles to compensate for the difference in height, leading to over-bearing of weight and a constant or irregular limp. Leg Length Discrepancy will also commonly affect the feet, leading to different lengths or widths in each respective foot, and can lead to other foot conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinitis and Arch Pain or Strain.
