If a you, or someone you know, suffers from a painful lower back that is aggravated during or after walking or standing, it may be a good indicator that foot dysfunction is the root cause of the problem.
If we think of your back as the building, then we can see our feet are the foundation that supports it. If there are issues in our walking pattern and feet, it can lead to compensation further up the chain. This can be seen in knee injuries, hip pain or even back problems.
If these symptoms are present, the use of appropriate podiatric biomechanical treatment can help alleviate pain and provide prevention of further deterioration. By using video gait analysis to analyze the gait patterns of those with lower back pain, we can uncover biomechanical issues and develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
If you’re currently dealing with back pain and think your feet might be a part of the cause, call our clinic at (07) 3823 5423 to book an appointment with a podiatrist today.
