Although relatively various, footwear cannot be ruled out for having an influence on low back pain. For the purposes of the article, I shall be talking over how over pronation (also best known as flat feet/dropped arches) could be influencing your lower back pain.
Before progressing any furthermore, I am going to assume that walking/standing belongs to the worst things for within pain. The reason I USUALLY mention this, is because otherwise, and let's say going for walks actually eases your pain (which it will for many people) it is like unlikely your footwear has any influence at all on your back pain.
Now we have showed that, I shall pose my first question:
Is your pain the same regardless of what you are wearing for a feet, or is some footwear better/worse compared to those?
If they are the same and you've got several different types of trainers, your footwear may not be the problem. Instead it could be the physical process of walking that is aggravating your pain. This is often a result of how yourself are working and the stresses they are placing upon your spine, as opposed to acne on your feet. Whereas if certain footwear is better/worse for your back pain it is possible could be contributing to your lower back pain. This would lead to make my next question, which is:
What is the arch support as in the footwear of the shoes that makes your pain better/worse?
What I would be specifically looking at here's, is there good support for an footwear you find comfortable or very little support on people that make your pain worsened? The reason I i am asking this, is because over pronation (flat feet/dropped arches) may have an influence on low back pain because of the way it causes the ankle joint to twist in, therefore placing increased stress around the lower back. Consequently, if you are finding footwear which comes with an good arch support is ideal for your low record (or the shoes with out support make your problems worse), it maybe that you are over pronated and it is this which is contributing to your pain.
Under these circumstance, as well as considering some good calf stretches as tight calf muscles can cause over pronation, I would also state government you try some off the shelf orthotics to see that they help. The reason I mention off the shelf orthotics, is because a lot of the time these can be just as good as prescribed ones.
In conjunction with this however, is the fact that shaped orthotics can cost a lot of cash. Off the shelf ones are just a fraction of that cost and will still be a good indicator as to whether over pronation is a reason for your pain. You will also find that we now have some off the shelf orthotics wanting to offer a 30 day cashback guarantees! Therefore, if you discover they help or solve your pain, you have saved yourself a lot of money, whereas if they have failed, simply ask for a refund.
In summary, over pronation can be a contributor to back pain, hopefully this article helps to guide you as to whether it may be influencing what you're currently suffering with..
