Foot Orthotics For Low Back Pain

Share

At least 80% of the U.S. population will experience back pain at some point in their life, which accounts for more than 3 million reported cases of lower back pain each year. Lower back pain is also one of the biggest reasons people miss work. A solution doesn’t include trips to the doctor, insurance agency, or prescription medication.

Understanding Low Back Pain

Low back pain symptoms can differ for everyone, ranging from dull aches to sharp /stabbing pain. Low back pain can inhibit our ability to stand up straight, move around, lift everyday items, and do household chores, e.g., laundry and garbage.

  • It is considered acute when the pain comes quickly, such as after lifting something heavy or from an injury.
  • It is considered chronic if the pain lasts more than three months.

Common Causes

  • Heavy lifting, exercise, or sudden jerking movements and injury can cause acute pain.
  • Injury can also lead to more chronic issues like sciatica
  • Those of us with desk jobs are at risk for chronic low back pain.

Be careful when carrying a bag

  • Purses, backpacks, and briefcases carried over the shoulder increase the risk of chronic back pain because the lower back takes all the weight.
  • Instead, get a rolling bag/case or a backpack that distributes the weight evenly over the body, across both shoulders.
  • Other causes of lower back pain can be hormones, weight, lifestyle, and environmental factors.

The Solution to Low Back Pain

  • Many chiropractors encourage the use of custom orthotics to help treat various problems, including joint pain, foot discomfort, and posture issues.
  • Custom orthotics are insoles that are slipped into shoes and made especially for your body.
  • Wearing custom orthotics provides immediate relief from lower back pain and helps prevent it from returning.
  • Custom orthotics are created by scanning and assessing your feet in less than five minutes.
  • A one-of-a-kind solution is created by simply standing barefoot on a kiosk inside your chiropractor’s office.
  • No X-rays, MRIs, or further testing is required.
  • The foot scan assesses the three arches in both of your feet and how you distribute your weight on the foundation of your body.

 

 

Although many people try to treat their low back pain on their own, one of the fastest and best ways to treat it is through custom orthotics, which will optimize the performance of your entire body. Over-the-counter orthotics do not provide proper support and can even cause more damage to the body. Chronic lower back pain is not a normal thing that has to do with age or lifestyle. If you are experiencing lower back pain, call a chiropractor and ask about how custom orthotics can help you.

Orthotics

When there are problems with the feet, it can cause problems through the legs and all the way to the spine. This can cause the ankle to pronate, meaning it rolls inward. This alters the way the bones of the foot line up, which extends through the tibia or shin bone. Ankle pain and injury are not issues reserved solely for athletes. In the United States, more than 25,000 people deal with ankle sprains or pain daily. Studies show that around 40 percent of ankle sprains are not treated correctly or misdiagnosed, leading to disability or chronic ankle pain.

 



Ankle Manipulation

The typical treatment for pain, such as with a sprain, is R.I.C.E., which is rest, ice, compression, and elevation. A newer treatment approach replaces the R with an M, meaning that movement is required instead of rest. However, it is important that the movement is done safely and carefully. Certain types of ankle injuries can be exacerbated by movement, so they should be approached with care. Chiropractic can help reduce pain without prescription medication and the associated side effects. This alone is often a great draw for many patients. However, there are other benefits that chiropractic can provide for ankle pain.
