Your Feet Could Be Causing Your Back Pain
All parts of your body are linked together. And your feet are the foundation of your body’s structure. That’s why it’s crucial to have proper foot support!
Your entire body is supported and balanced by your feet. When the vast majority of people walk, their foot rolls in. It’s natural, and it’s called pronation.
Pronation becomes a problem when it becomes excessive.
When you over-pronate, the rest of your body begins to suffer. This includes pain in the knee, hip, and back.
Arch Collapse and Back Pain
Most people develop strong, flexible arches in childhood. Over time, the repetitive stresses of daily life typically cause the foot’s arches to collapse.
The foundation provided by the feet and legs must bear the weight of the entire body (and considerably more during running and other sports). If there is insufficient or inadequate support from your feet, the spine will be exposed to abnormal stress that may eventually develop into low back pain
Orthotics and the Foot/Spine Connection
Standing: The alignment of the arches in each foot has a significant impact on the position of the legs and pelvis. If your arches are collapsed, they can put the knee out of position and lead to increased pain. A research study found that custom-made, flexible orthotics can significantly improve the alignment of the arches when standing
Walking: Orthotics are flexible and supportive to allow smooth transfer of the body’s center of mass over the leg to conserve energy and help eliminate pain.
Postural benefits: Improving foot alignment can help maintain knee, hip, pelvis, and even spinal postural alignment. Preventing hip, knee, or spinal joint degeneration requires additional support and shock absorption orthotics. Often a pelvic or spinal tilt will often respond rapidly to orthotic support
Reasons To Get A Pair of Stabilizing Orthotics
Easy, Proven, Conservative Care
Orthotics are proven to reduce Low Back Pain by 33.5%. Low back pain is the #1 cause of missed work, and is the leading cause of the current opioid crisis.
Problems in the feet can cause problems throughout the rest of the body.
Heel Strike Shock Reduction
Innovative materials absorb shock, which helps reduce pain and discomfort caused by heel strike while walking.
Studies show orthotics help increase drive distance on the gold course and reduce pain in those who stand all day.
Your balance, and the way you walk are improved by wearing orthotics.
