Back Pain and The Foot Connection
Lets take a look and figure out why more than 1 in 7 adults suffer with back pain
There are many reasons for chronic back pain. Back pain is a symptom, a warning signal that something is wrong. So what's wrong? And why have the other
treatments failed. Take a look at your feet. We’ve all experienced that uncomfortable ache in the lower or upper back from time to time. Back pain is relatively common and can be caused by a variety of scenarios—sleeping the wrong way, sitting at a poorly configured work space all day, or just plain old aging— but while back pain is common and there are many reasons why we may experience it, it shouldn’t be constant. Many times, we attribute back pain to “being on my feet for too long” or “not wearing the right shoes”, but our bodies are naturally designed to withstand being on our feet for extended periods of time. While we’re not suggesting you perform 8 hours of manual labor in heels, we are suggesting that there may be an underlying reason to back pain—talotarsal displacement, or misaligned feet.
