The Best Shoes for Back Pain in 2022
What is Back Pain?
Back pain associated with the feet is often a result of asymmetry or a lack of alignment from the ground up. When our bodies are out of alignment beginning at your feet on the ground, it can have a serious impact on our entire skeletal system
Back pain common symptoms/complaints
- General aching across the lower back
- Pain in upper back and neck region
- In many cases, there is no noted foot pain or complaints of foot pain
How is back pain caused?
When the feet are over or under pronated, the entire skeletal system gets out of alignment. This is most common with over pronation but can be seen with under pronation as well. The alignment of the entire leg, hips and lower back is affected. This strains the muscles of the lower back as they attempt to maintain a normal back posture. The poor alignment at our foundation causes a stress affect all the way up to our spine. Depending on the individual, the pain associated with this poor alignment can be felt in various different locations.
The human foot naturally has curvature that was designed to navigate soft natural terrain. It is only recently that mankind has “paved” the world and we have walked on hard flat surfaces with shoes. This is where the poor alignment begins.
How is back pain treated?
- Wearing orthotics to help improve posture is a commonly recommended practice and provides relief with consistent use
- Wearing shoes designed to simulate natural gait
- Wearing shoes with rocker bottom soles simulate walking barefoot on natural terrain
It is also very important that shoes for back pain have removable insoles to accommodate orthotics for back pain.
