Limb-Length Discrepancy on Gait Economy in Older Adults
It is interesting to see an article on leg length insufficiency relating to fatigue and oxygen consumption. Chiropractors have been checking for this for ever. This article relates to after effects of surgical joint replacement, but the concepts and end results can be the same. Sometimes something as simple as fitting a patient for orthotics can fix many problems…I’ve seen many patients with genu valgus (knock-kneed) and much knee pain and degeneration that would be in my office know if someone had fitted them for orthotics ten years ago.
