    hi,
    can anyone help with any literature for either limb length or heel bisection? info such as who invented the assessment, any statistics to go with it? Also any measurement tools which can be reliable as to measuring either limb lenth or heel bisection?

    Thank youu

    Reflecting your bias in utilizing the evidence, it is interesting that you omitted the following thread:

    entitled:
    leg length discrepancy: how do you measure it clinically


    http://www.podiatry-arena.com/podiatry-forum/showthread.php?t=5768&page=2

    when listing what you admit as unreliable methods to include The Inclined Posture, listed on that thread as yet another unreliable choice to consider.

    Please explain.

  3. Dennis if you click on the link LLD threads and scroll down the list the thread that you said say I did not list is there ( half way down the page), as are all threads which admin has decided are coded with Leg length discrepancy.

    So what you have done is shown your bias to jumping to conclusions, not reading and generally being argumentative.

    Once again, I apologize for the mistaken thread quote and url tag.

    The thread I was referring to that you left out was

    The Inclined Posture

    http://www.podiatry-arena.com/podiatry-forum/showthread.php?t=27248

    which was pasted from the mistaken thread that I quoted but has a life of its own.


    Please respond in kind..

  5. Dennis post up the link don't make deal of it. There is lots of info re the question of the thread - most negative but I just posted up some stuff after a 3 min search. If you got more post it up I'm sure Rabzash will be happy.

    does anyone know whether a tape measure is a good gold standard for measuring limb length and whether there are any statistical tests described to explain how reseach has been carried out?
