Limb Length Discrepancy Symptoms

Limb Length Discrepancy Symptoms

What are the symptoms of leg length discrepancy?


The effects of limb length discrepancy vary from patient to patient, depending on the cause and size of the difference.

Patients who have differences of 3-1/2 to 4 percent of total leg length (about 4 cm or 1-2/3 inches in an average adult) may limp or have other difficulties when walking. Because these differences require the patient to exert more effort to walk, he or she may tire easily.

Some studies show that patients with limb length discrepancies are more likely to experience low back pain and are more susceptible to injury. Other studies do not support this finding, however.
