Leg Length Inequalities May Be Why Your Low Back Pain Keeps Returning After Temporary Relief From Treatments
F YOU HAVE ONE LEG that is longer than the other, be it from growing unevenly or the result of trauma (like a fractured leg that didn’t heal correctly), you may be experiencing low back pain as a result.
Standing on uneven legs causes a tilt in your pelvis. Remember, a tilted pelvis can cause your lumbar spine to curve, which can cause a strain or sprain in the low back (lumbar spine).
An example of a leg length discrepancy causing a pelvic tilt would be if your right upper leg is shorter than your left; this would cause your right pelvis to tilt down, as shown in the Figure above.
Can you see how this can cause low back pain?
COLLAPSED ARCHES AND ORTHOTICS
If you have equal leg lengths, yet your pelvis tilts, the tilt could be caused by one foot collapsing more than the other when you walk. The foot that collapses more will cause the pelvis to tilt just like a short leg would.
The solution for collapsed arches is orthotics (a supportive device you wear in your shoes to provide additional support for your feet.

OTHER HIDDEN CAUSES OF LOW BACK PAIN:
If an adjustment feels good, but the relief lasts less than an hour, it may be because you do not need to be adjusted but stabilized! Maybe your pain is from a sprained sacroiliac (SI) joint.
Why Wait? See if an SI belt is for you!

POOR POSTURE CAN LEAD TO LOW BACK PAIN:
If you have low back pain, improving your posture should help. Poor posture puts pressure on the low back as it strains to hold your torso up while being compressed from the slouched position. To learn more about how to improve your posture, check out my book, Combat Slouching. The following advises how to improve the workstation to help better you posture. Remember to also move and stretch frequently.
A POOR MATTRESS CAN LEAD TO LOW BACK PAIN:
If you have low back pain, it may be from a poor mattress, or a good mattress that has become too old and worn.
You don't have to be in pain. Why wait?
