For those who suffer from back pain, it can be difficult to find a treatment that has long-lasting effects. Every patient has different needs that need to be met, so it is important that you find what works for you through the process of trial and error. Our Lincoln Park chiropractors recommend custom foot orthotics to patients who want to find a solution to their lower back pain. They help realign how your feet position themselves on the ground, which impacts how you stand and how you walk.
The Feet are Your Foundation
Your feet are the foundation of the way in which your body moves. If your feet have a deficiency in how they move, the rest of your body will be impacted. Custom orthotics help reduce the lumbosacral angle, which is responsible for posterior facet impingement. Custom orthotics also help to stabilize the lumbar spine which helps increase stabilization in the lower back.
One tell-tale sign that you can benefit from custom orthotics is if you have an increase in lower back pain when you are standing or walking for long periods of time.
Wear Supportive Shoes
Try to wear supportive shoes as often as possible to help support your back. If your workplace requires a specific type of shoe that is not as supportive as you’d want it to be, custom orthotics will, at the very least, improve the amount of support that they give.
Taking care of your feet will, in turn, benefit your back. Contact our Lincoln Park chiropractors to see how our services can make you feel your best in 2019!
