Thanks Michael, but I think you and Heidi both misread
my post slightly, in different ways.

I do not have weak feet, I have one shin bone
significantly shorter than the other. So I hit the
ground exceptionally heavily with that foot.
Naturally this results in a tipped pelvis; the pelvis
also rotates forward as the bodyweight passes over the
foot of the shorter leg. This in turn caused heavy
wear to the lumbar spine on the long-leg side, also
severe neck tension and pain.

The rotation could be controlled to a small degree by
core work, but not sufficiently for the discrepancy in
leg length that exists. This is the stage I had got
to 25 years ago - bracing my abs very hard during any
impact exercise, to minimise the back pain.

You would need to visualise a stick man moving to see
how the joints would grate. It's little like having
uneven suspension on your car.

Many years on, I am doing harder, more frequent
workouts, with no arthritic pain whatsoever. I
consider it unfortunate that most folks associate
podiatrists only with foot problems; one that does
gait analysis can help you get back into healthy
functional balance.
