Low back pain affects more people than you think, and despite being a cause of concern, most people decide to live with it.
The presence of low back pain is most easily seen in the way someone moves or walks while experiencing pain.
The pain itself can range from mild to severe, sharp to dull, or short-term to constant. The causes of lower back pain are many. Therefore any pain or discomfort lasting more than 3 days should be examined by your health care professional for diagnosis.
You should expect a complete physical examination with posture analysis and sometimes X-ray or MRI/CT study.
If your case is related to any muscular or structure problems, then a complete posture check can help find the root cause of the imbalance.
Disc problems and joint sprains of the low back are often accompanied by unlevelled hips and pelvis. Flat feet is one of the common causes of low back pain.
Flat feet cause an inward rotation of the leg bones, thus unbalancing the hips and stressing the lower back.
Treatment for this type of low back pain should include a comprehensive, active approach to spinal adjustments, stretching and strengthening exercises, pain relief therapies and foot insoles.
MASS4D® foot insoles are built to support your feet in their optimal posture. This allows your feet to properly align, thus improving alignment from the feet up to the hips and spine.
As a result, you experience greater comfort and freedom of movement in the lower back and full spine.
