Itís normally not noticeable when the difference is less than 1/2 inch (13 mm) or so. But when itís greater than that, the asymmetric loading on the pelvis under a squat or deadlift can be enough to cause problems that should be addressed with corrective measures. We use a shim under the foot.

    Hello Mark. Would like to know if you know anyone in South florida who can help me assess my hip and legs to see if there is any discrepancy.

    No. You'll have to do your own research.
