Washington: Arthritis in the knee is linked to the common trait of having one leg that is longer than the other, claims a new study. Developing early strategies for treatment may be possible, believes Derek Cooke, Queen`s University adjunct professor and a co-author of the study.
Leg length inequality is difficult to detect. A small leg length differential –1 cm or less – can be corrected with a shoe insert, while a bigger one can be corrected with surgery. But because the condition often goes undiagnosed, many people don`t realize they have a leg length differential until they`re diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Arthritis in the knees can cause pain, swelling and stiffness, and limit mobility. ANI
