A common phrase I hear from clients is that they have previously been told they “have one leg that is longer than the other”. Naturally this may make us think that we have two legs of different lengths, which can be quite worrying. In a lot of cases though the legs are not actually different sizes, there are factors in the body which makes the appearance of ‘one leg longer’.
Leg length difference can cause a number of symptoms amongst clients I see: lower back pain, knee pain, hip/groin pain, shoulder pain are just a few examples.
In this article we are going to look into why many of us do appear to have ‘one leg longer’. We will look at what this means and what you can do about it.
As a therapist, Pilates instructor & previously a fitness instructor the phrase I have heard the most without doubt is "I need to strengthen my core".
This can be for a number of reasons back pain, posture, flat stomachs, toned abdominals etc.
But the questions is will we achieve the results we want to by simply just strengthening our core?
