Listen now
Description
Brodie dives into a 2005 review paper by Gary A Knutson titled: 'Anatomic and functional leg-length inequality: A review and recommendation for clinical decision-making'. In part 2 Brodie will talk about: Your responses and personal experiences with leg length discrepancy, what treatments have been effective or unhelpful. The difference between anatomical discrepancy and the functional 'short leg', stemmed from neuromuscular dysfunction.  The effects a leg discrepancy might have on your core endurance, balance and coordination. The role of heel lifts for individuals with and without significant discrepancy (>20mm).  Brodie then summarises the episode and includes his perspective on the relevance within the running community.  Become a patron!
