Leg length discrepancy and lumbo-pelvic alignment

What is the evidence?

Structurally, leg length discrepancies (LLD) have been widely reported to result in misalignment and physical alteration of the pelvis, sacrum and lumbar spine.

Taking a top down approach, the authors of the present study sought to characterize the most common dysfunctions of the lumbo-pelvic complex and find correlations with weight bearing alteration and LLD.
