When we are born we have perfect feet and with aging they become somewhat distorted. Your feet can have a significant impact on the balancing of your entire body making it extremely important to have the proper feet support. Inadequate support can cause lower back pain as external pressures are not properly addressed. Wearing heel shock absorbers and having properly fit shoe support can help reduce back pain.

Key Takeaways:

  • If leg or foot asymmetries or misalignments exist, abnormal forces transmitted along the closed kinetic chain can interfere with spinal function.
  • The feet are the foundation of the body. Statistical evidence shows that, at birth, most people have perfect feet. By age 20, 80 percent of those “perfect feet” have developed some type of problem, and by age 40 nearly everyone has a foot condition of some sort.
  • Many foot conditions eventually contribute to health concerns farther up the kinetic chain, especially the generalized condition of “back pain.” Therefore, it’s in the best interest of both you and your patient to spot a potential low-back problem before it is allowed to negatively affect health and lifestyle.
