Lower Back Pain
Pain in the lower back is not uncommon, as many as 65-80% of the population will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. It can have many different causes and one these could be the way you walk, since the position and movement of the back is linked directly to the position and movement of the feet and legs during walking.
How can it be linked to excess pronation? When there is excess pronation the foot rolls over, flattening to the ground, and this movement forces the leg to turn inwards. As the leg turns inwards it can change the alignment of the hips, the pelvis and the lower back, and this could lead to pain in the lower back due to stresses in this area.
Scholl Orthaheel Orthotic Inserts can help reduce excess pronation and so affect the alignment of the body from the feet up to the lower back. For some people with lower back pain, reducing amount of pronation may have some positive benefits..
