How Do Custom Orthotics Work as a Low Back Pain Treatment?

Written By Coates Chiropractic Clinic on February 14, 2020

custom orthoticsOur feet don’t get enough credit for the work they do every day. 

Your feet are responsible for carrying the weight of your entire body day in and day out – they’re your body’s foundation. 

When something throws off the natural shape of your foot or your gait, this screws up the biomechanics across the rest of your body. Most knee, hip, and low back pain can all be traced back to feet problems.

That’s why custom orthotics are such an effective low back pain treatment.

Why Do You Need Orthotics for Low Back Pain Treatment?

Every human foot contains 26 bones, 30 joints, 19 muscles, and over 100 ligaments. With so many tiny moving parts, that leaves plenty of room for something to go wrong – especially when you consider that the average Canadian weighs about 80 kilos. 

If your foot loses its natural shape, that causes inflammation and pain across your body. 

For example, flat feet or fallen arches cause your knees to sink and rotate inwards. Not only does this put you at risk for knee injuries from damaged cartilage, but it also irritates your hips and throws off your back posture.
