  • TORONTO DOCTOR STATES THAT FOOT PROBLEMS ARE A LEADING CAUSE OF BACK PAIN

 

 

DR. HARDY, A RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR WITH OVER 30 YEARS OF CLINICAL EXPERIENCE UNDER HIS BELT KNOWS ALL TO WELL ABOUT BACK PAIN AND ITS CONNECTION TO IMPROPER FOOT MECHANICS.  THE HUMAN BODY IS AN AMAZING MACHINE AND WHEN PARTS OF THIS MACHINE ARE NOT IN PROPER ALIGNMENT OR NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY THIS CAN HAVE SEVERE REPERCUSSIONS IN OTHER PARTS OFTHE BODY.  MANY TIMES THE CAUSE OF BACK PAIN HAS IT ORIGINS IN IMPROPER BIOMECHANICS OF THE FOOT WITH A CONDITION KNOWN AS OVER-PRONATION WHERE THE LONGITUDINAL ARCH HAS FALLEN RESULTING IN A FOOT CONDITION KNOWN AS PES PLANUS.  THIS CAUSES MEDIAL ROTATION OF THE LOWER LIMB AND ALTERED MECHANICS OF THE WHOLE BODY.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THIS MECHANICAL DEFICIENCY BE PROPERLY ADDRESSED IN ORDER FOR THE BODY TO HEAL PROPERLY.  SIMPLY ONLY MASKING THE SYMPTOMS WITH MEDICATIONS IS NO SOLUTION.  THE BEST AND MOST EFFICIENT METHOD OF CORRECTING OVER-PRONATION IS BY PRESCRIBING CUSTOM-MADE ORTHOTICS.  I WON'T TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES A PATIENT AFTER BEING PRESCRIBED CUSTOM ORTHOTICS HAD THEIR BACK PAIN TOTALLY ERADICATED.  THE FIRST THING THAT I LOOKED AT IN MY POSTURAL EVALUATION OF A NEW PATIENT WAS THE ALIGNMENT OF THE FEET.  IF I FOUND A PROBLEM WITH THE FEET I STARTED BY TRYING TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM FIRST.  THIS KNOWLEDGE THAT I LEARNED I HAVE IMPARTED TO ALL OF THE FOOT SPECIALISTS WHOM I EMPLOY.  ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS THAT I TRY TO MAKE THEM AWARE OF IS TO THINK OF THE BODY AS A WHOLE AND TO THINK PAST THE FOOT.
