Default Limb Length Discrepency

Becca has gotten to the point where the physical therapist that has been seeing her feels that it is time to do some type of correction. She is having pain in her knee and back, bulging in her back, and the difference between her feet and legs is getting much more. There was a really clear curve of her spine when the PT had her bend over from a standing position (and she didn't want to do it-PT thinks it is probably painful with the way her hips had to shift to do it). Does anyone have any experience with corrections for limb length issues? I would appreciate any input on what worked or didn't work or what we should avoid.
