One of the most common pain issues that people deal with is some form of foot pain. This pain can be seen through poor arch support, arthritis, and plantar fasciitis.
Other causes of foot pain can stem from:
- Neuromuscular issues
- Skeletal system problems
- Spinal misalignment
Foot issues are also the result of back pain or other upper body pain that can increase over time if not treated.
How Does Foot Pain Affect Your Back?
Your feet may seem like stable body parts, but they are more delicate than you think. Flat feet are the result of many cases of joint pain. Also, the impact of your feet on the ground can quickly lead to back pain if you are suffering from some sort of foot problem and are walking around for an extended period of time. Luckily, Orthotics can help this problem.
What Are the Benefits of Orthotics?
Orthotics are meant to help control an extremity or body segment to aid in rehabilitation or long-term corrective treatment. Orthotics are more than just corrective for the feet; they also work as pelvic stabilizers, leading to overall spinal alignment.
The reason they can be so beneficial is because they continue treatment even when the patient is not in the chiropractor’s office. Over time, orthoses can lead to full recovery, posture restoration, and more.
