Say Goodbye to Back Pain with Custom Orthotics

Written By Merivale Chiropractic and Massage Clinic on November 21, 2019

OrthoticsIf you suffer from low back pain, you are far from alone. As many as 80% of people will experience this problem during their lives.

One solution to low back pain that often gets overlooked is proper support of the feet. Comprised of 25% of the bones in the body and carrying the weight of the body daily, it’s clear the feet get plenty of wear and tear. What might be surprising is that caring for the feet can also make a positive difference in low back pain.

The Problem with Low Back Pain

Acute discomfort that lasts a few days to a few weeks is the most common type of back pain. When the pain persists beyond 12 weeks, it is classified as chronic. Chronic pain is often difficult to treat successfully with traditional treatment options like medication and surgery. One culprit of chronic low back pain is a misalignment of the spine, which can extend all the way to the feet.

What are Custom Orthotics?

Custom orthotics are inserts placed into your shoes to support and enhance the function of the feet. Because they are customized to the unique biomechanics of your foot, they provide support exactly where you need it most. When the feet are balanced and good posture is restored, custom orthotics can also alleviate low back pain in many patients.

Custom Orthotics and Chiropractic

While custom orthotics are good, custom orthotics combined with chiropractic care are even better. Our team of doctors at Merivale Chiropractic and Massage Clinic in Ottawa has the experience and expertise to combine these therapies to produce the best possible outcomes for patients.
