Is there an OTC product that compensates for leg length imbalances? I wore one for left leg in heel about 20 years ago and I think it caused lower back pain because it was just a heel insert. It was prescribed by a podiatrist or chiropractor (can't remember), but was probably more expensive than it should have been and ended up hurting in the long run. I'm sure the Dr. Scholl's does not accommodate these types of problems, but do any of the other OTC's address this?
Thanks for any experienced advice. I have extreme lower back pain now and am in search of a hopefully low cost solution as I'm just beginning new treatment with new chiropractor that is recommending some sort of orthodic to address falling arches and 1/4" length imbalance in leg. Dr. Scholl's was mentioned as a 'possible - but not great solution'. I too find the gel inserts to be too 'wiggly' which seems to end up causing more problems in the long run - especially for someone with lower back issues.
Stumbled on this site in doing my research and finding the comments interesting. Sorry - I'm not in the medical field.
