I am still amazed how often people talk about compliance with the use of these offloading devices but never mention the severity of leg length discrepancy they cause. A shoe build up makes walking so much easier. Try adding 2 cm to the sole of the shoe on the non-affected side. Then maybe you will be amazed how compliance improves.
