Back pain — A modern-day epidemic
SENSORIMOTOR FOOT ORTHOSES PROVIDE RELIEF TO TENSE STRUCTURES, STRENGTHEN MUSCLES AND CAN SUPPORT BACK PAIN TREATMENT REGIMENS.
Poor standing posture or uneven/unilateral foot stresses quickly lead to tension throughout the body, a condition often promoted by primarily “sedentary” routines in people's day-to-day lives. The effects of this quickly become painfully apparent. You find it difficult to straighten up all the way, experience pain in the discs of your back, your neck is sore and you often suffer from headaches. All of these symptoms can also be the result of muscular imbalances that can radiate up from the feet. Experience shows that sensorimotor foot orthoses in combination with exercise programs or physiotherapy can relieve back pain. The expert aims to harness the functional elements of your foot orthosis to give greater balance to your foot muscles.
