English term or phrase:a Dr. Scholl's-type therapeutic insert
See Your Tailor
If you have an aching back, it may be because one of your legs is shorter than the other. Even a slight imbalance can cause the spine to curve to the short side when you walk or run. Eventually, the bend puts painful pressure on disks. Most people can't tell whether their legs are different lengths, but a tailor can. Ask one for a quick measurement. If he finds an imbalance, correct the problem with a Dr. Scholl's-type therapeutic insert or see a podiatrist for a custom-made orthotic.
