Back pain and your feet

Did you know that back pain can be caused by poor foot posture?

Do you or someone you know suffer with back pain? Back problems can be debilitating and reduce your ability to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.

 If your back is:

  • Painful after standing on hard surfaces such as concrete
  • Painful after standing for long periods of time
  • Helped by wearing more supportive footwear

Then it is quite possible that your foot posture and gait could be contributing to your back pain.

High arches and flat feet can both contribute to back problems due to the stress and strain on your lower back and pelvis and the poor shock absorbing characteristics of these foot types.

Our podiatrists at the Active Foot Clinic have expertise in assessing and treating foot and lower limb posture and your gait (walking pattern).

Our podiatrists can then make treatment recommendations appropriate to your condition. Treatment options include specialised orthotics or insoles and footwear advice getting you back to a comfortable more active lifestyle.

If you would like to find out if your back pain is being caused by your feet make an appointment with an Active Foot Clinic podiatrist today on 6925 8637.
