Back Pain Information

Podiatrists treat back pain that is caused by abnormalities in foot posture. Excessive foot pronation results in internal rotation of the lower limb. Since the hip bone is attached to the pelvis by an angled “ball-in-socket” joint, internal hip rotation leads to a forward tilt to the pelvis. This increases pressure on the lumbar vertebrae (causing joint inflammation) and shifts the body’s centre of gravity forward. As a result, abnormal muscle tightness (muscle spasm) produces pain in the lower back. Over a period of time, patients develop poor posture as well.
