I have one leg longer than the other what can be done?

Most of us aren’t as symmetrical as we think we are. It is quite common to have one leg longer than the other. If this difference becomes large enough though it can start to affect how we walk and move.

Correction can be made using heel raises, orthotics and footwear modifications. All of these can have a very positive effect when used correctly.
