I have been going to a massage therapist for a bad back and he mentioned that I have one leg longer than the other. He states that it is a half inch longer and is what is causing me a lot of my back problem. He believes that it happened when I broke my leg a year and a half ago. I broke the tibia and fibula. I had two surgeries sine then, one to put a plate in and one to take the plate out. The massage therapist said that he has a couple of recommendations for my back doctor, but will not tell me what. I am a little worried. What could be done to fix this problem?
my husband has the same problem due to a broken leg many years ago. A couple of freinds also have the same rpoblem...it seems to be common though and most of them have knee or lower back pain. No one I know had had anything done though, they just deal with it.
I would just deal with it, but since I already have a bad back, they think that this will just hurt it more. They make it sound like this could make me re-hurt my back (herniated disk) and have to start from step one again with fixing it. I have been working hard to heal my back for a while and do not want to do it all again.
Please dont think I meant for you to "just deal with it"..... thats not what I meant at all!!!!! I was just saying that the people I know do. By all means pursue treatment!!! I wish all the luck in the world. And truely hope you find an option that works for you!!!!!
I did not mean to sound upset. I was just saying that I do not think that just leaving it will work for me. I am going to talk to my back doctor and see what he says, but he will probably want to do something about it. It is making my back worst and my posture is bad partly because of it.
I do not live anywhere near Michigan, so I will not be able to go there. But, I will keep that in mind.
