Are you one of them….?

One of the most incapacitating injuries is chronic low back pain.

The problem is so severe that one-half of all adult Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, chronic low back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work.

In fact, more than $50 billion is spent each year on treating low back pain. Recent research suggests that back pain may be closely linked to poor or improper biomechanics.

Many researchers, in fact, agree that chronic or low back pain may be significantly related to how you walk (gait style), a reason we are shifting our focus to the feet to treat hip and back pain. Everyone knows that low back pain is a recurrent problem.

Why? Because most doctors do not look at the way you walk.

One flaw in your gait style can lead to strain on your back.

Using custom foot orthoses to change the mechanics of foot function may improve hip extension and create prolonged relief from low back symptoms. We have witnessed countless cases of custom foot orthotics relieving hip and back pain.

In our opinion, anyone who suffers from chronic hip or back pain should be evaluated by a podiatrist to assess their feet.

Medications, rest, exercise, and weight loss may all be effective in relieving hip and back pain.

Unfortunately, they are not a cure in most cases.

Eliminating the cause of the pain should be the ultimate goal.

Since faulty foot mechanics are often the cause of back pain, using custom foot orthotics can be worth a lifetime of relief from this otherwise chronic condition.

To a Healthy Back,

Dr. David Schlam
