Hesselberg’s Health Hints:
Why You Should Look At Your Feet If You Have Back Pain!
Many people have back pain, sometimes it's chronic and sometimes your back just "goes out." Something that many people never consider is that their feet could be the cause! Your feet are the foundation of the body. Consider the leaning Tower of Pisa, if the bottom was stable the building would be upright!
When your feet roll inward, it's called pronation. Pronation puts added stress on the knees, which are pulled inward. It then translates up to the hips and pelvis which pull forward, causing back pain (many knee and hip replacements would be unnecessary if people addressed their biomechanics years prior).
So what is my solution? It is orthotics. Orthotics are custom shoe inserts I would mold for you. There are many techniques that Podiatrists and Chiropractors use for molding your feet for orthotics. I only use a company called Sole Supports. They have the most effective technique and are the only company I have ever had great results with.
The cost for Sole Supports Orthotics is $240.00. I have to tell you mine are over 10 years old and still working. That's a great return on investment!
Whatever you do......keep on moving!
Yours in Good Health,
