Whether it is from sitting on a computer, obesity, physical labor, or an injury, all of us experience back pain at some point. I think we can all agree that back pain is very frustrating, especially when the pain stops us from being able to do the things we love.
Often, a sore back is due to adaptions in the feet. A trained chiropractor can identify and make adjustments to help you live pain free.
There are two frequent variations of foot adaptions that can cause back pain:
A pronated (flatter) foot can often lead to back pain. This is because the leg bones rotate inward, which causes the ilium of the pelvis to rotate forward. The side of your back with the more severe pronation becomes more in extension than the side that is less pronated.
Under Pronated Foot
Similarly, to pronated feet, under pronated (high arches) feet can also lead to back pain. Your leg and thigh rotate outwards causing extension of your side, therefore back pain.
If you are suffering from back pain, it is important to speak with a chiropractor that can help alleviate the pain. Dr. Sawyer Chiropractic treats patients for chiropractic care in Santa Cruz, California. Contact our chiropractors in Santa Cruz today.
