Shoulder Pain

People everywhere suffer from foot ache due to leg length discrepancy. Many people have slight difference in the length of one leg which is considered functional leg length difference or normal variation as it does not cause any significant problems.

A significant leg length discrepancy however can cause problems as it can disturb the way a person walks and put strain on the spine and the hip joints. When this occur the individual may walk with a limp and have the appearance of a curved spine. They may also experience pain in the ankle, hip and back. In fact for many back pain sufferers, leg length difference is the culprit.

A heel lift or a whole sole lift to the shoes is one of the best treatment for leg length difference. This prevents the foot from being unnecessarily stressed in an abnormal position. Custom orthotics with a heel raise on the shorter leg is also another option. The heel raise are capable of relieving any pain in the feet. Careful measurements have to be made by the foot specialist to determine the exact amount of the heel lift or heel raise. The patient will then have to go through a period of adjusting to the new way of walking with heel lift. Sometimes further adjustment may be needed to get it just right.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is an extremely common complaint affecting around three in ten adults at some time during their lives. There are many common causes of this problem and it is one of the more common reasons for physician visits for musculoskeletal symptoms. The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body and is also one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. A group of four tendons in the shoulder, called the rotator cuff, give the shoulder a wide range of motion. This range of motion cause the shoulder to be one of the most unstable joint in the body. This instability increases the likelihood of joint injury, often leading to a degenerative process in which tissues break down and no longer function well.


  • Swelling, damage, or bone changes around the rotator cuff can cause shoulder pain. Pain may be experienced when lifting the arm above the head or moving it forward or behind the back.
  • Bursitis or tendonitis of the rotator cuff, rotator cuff tear which occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff separate from the bone.
  • Frozen Shoulder is also a common condition that leads to stiffness of the joint. Strains from overexertion, shoulder joint instability, dislocation and pinched nerves are further common causes of shoulder pain.
