Dr. Robert Barton with Peak Performance Spine & Sports Medicine in Pasadena, TX discusses a case study where the cause of a patient’s hip pain was due to a congenital long leg on the affected side.
This causes additional biomechanical stress on the long leg side and after millions of steps throughout the patient’s lifetime, this stress is likely contributed to the early wear and tear of his right hip. The initial treatment in this case was a $6.00 heal lift to correct the leg length discrepancy.
He was also prescribed a stretching routine for his muscles around the hips.
