Did you know that back pain can be caused by poor foot posture?
Do you or someone you know suffer with back pain? Back problems can be debilitating and reduce your ability to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.
If your back is:
- Painful after standing on hard surfaces such as cement or tiles
- Painful after standing for long periods of time
- Helped by wearing more supportive footwear
Then it is quite possible that your foot posture and gait could be contributing to your back pain.
High arches and flat feet can both contribute to back problems due to the stress and strain on your lower back and pelvis and the poor shock absorbing characteristics of these foot types.
The team at Brindabella Podiatry have many years of experience to accurately assess and diagnose your condition. We have the most recent 3D foot imaging laser scanner and computerised pressure plate system which we use to help assess conditions and make orthotics when required.
We have Hicaps for health fund rebates and no referral is necessary. We can directly refer for X-Ray, Ultrasound or MRI if required.
