Did you know that low back pain can start with problems in the feet? The feet are our foundation and the building block of our posture. When things are not functioning properly in the feet then the body tries to compensate higher up the kinetic chain (which includes, knees, hips, spine, shoulders, neck and head). As those body parts try to compensate for each other you may start to experience pain. For the record pain should not be considered normal. When your body hurts it is responding to something that is not right.
Fixing the issues in the feet can sometime magically reduce the pain in the neck….literally. Getting proper foot wear and custom orthotics can help manage foot problems ultimately elevating discomfort in the body.
