Ok guys I was wondering if anybody has had a problem with leg lenth discrepancy and bulged disc. I have bulged my L4/L5 3mm and my L5/S1 3mm. The latar impinges the nerve root on the left which has caused numbness down my lateral part of my left foot as well as muscle wastage through the calf.
My left hip capsule, and hip flexor/rec femoris is tighter than the right side. My rehab has been loads of soft tissue work with hockey balls/foam rollers/mobility exercises/flexibilty on the hip flexors/glute/ITB coupled with activation work for the posterior chain with various plank exercises for the abs.
I measured my leg length from the ASIS to my heel and noticed that my left leg is 1-1.5 cm longer. However my left ASIS probably sits about 2-2.5 cm higher when standing. I have had a physical therapist suggest to wear a heel insert on my right side to counteract the disrepancy. However I am very cautious of doing this. What do others suggest? I am worried this discrapency may slow my rehab.
