Back Pain: The Power is in Your Hands… Or Should We Say Feet?

Did you know that millions of people worldwide suffer from spinal disorders? These disorders include neck pain, disc disease and lower back pain to name a few. In fact, according to the Global Burden of Disease study, lower back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide.

Although back pain can be caused by a variety of internal and external factors, research suggests that poor posture and foot problems are major contributors to the development of back pain.

Since your feet play a key role in absorbing the shock you place on your body every day and are the foundation for your entire body, it makes sense that problems in your neck, back, hips and knees can often be traced back to your feet.

Take flat feet for example. Flat feet cause misalignment with the ankle, which causes misalignment in the knee. Misalignment in the knee then affects your hips which affects the way you walk, which affects your spine, specifically your lower back. It all goes back to the feet.

Luckily, lower back issues due to foot problems are typically easy to treat. In fact, most of the time using an orthotic insole in your shoe can help significantly lower or even eliminate the pain.

Having arch support in your shoes can dramatically affect your daily life, because it helps position your feet into the place where they can function best. This means better overall alignment for your lower extremities, resulting in serious relief and comfort during daily work-related nuances, intense post-work training sessions, and everything in between.
