Helping a Leg Length Discrepancy

I have written before about how my legs are different lengths due to a fractured femur that was a result of a car accident. Well, recently, I was experiencing unusual low back pain. I sat down and wondered what the blazes was going on. After all this time, why did it suddenly flare up? What was different? Then, it dawned on me why.

Since my tkr, I have not been wearing a raised-heel slipper on my shorter leg. (That’s the leg that had my tkr, also). I wore a slipper for 35 years prior to my tkr. Not having that extra height to balance my legs and hips is probably one reason for my extra knee pain in my other leg. Go figure how everything ties in together.

This leads to another issue. I was on a slipper shopping mission. Since when have slippers become a seasonal item? It’s next to impossible to find them in the major department stores now, in summer months. What do slippers have to do with seasons? I, for one, cannot figure it out. It’s not like you wear them outdoors. Or, if you do, well….no comment.

I finally found a slipper with a smaller heel than I needed. The heel was about half the size I needed. Instead of getting frustrated, I had a flash that only Red Green or another duct tape lover would be proud of. I was going to duct tape the two slippers together. Honest. That’s what I did.

It’s worked out well so far. It’s been about two weeks. Even length legs, no back pain, and a new slipper to boot. And, a new use for duct tape. Orthopedic slippers. 🙂

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

  • Some of the reasons given to explain lower back pain during pregnancy are mere myths which people spread through word of mouth and are based on no research. One can learn the truth about the causes through an informed research. Many mothers consult doctors because of these problems. I dislike lower back pain, drives me crazy. Did it go away after your pregnancy?

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch
