Back & Hip Referred Pain

With many painful symptoms in the hips and back resulting from bad foot posture, it is important to consider the role of your feet in your health and well-being.

Excessive foot pronation (where the foot rolls in too much) can cause the leg to turn inwards. This in turn causes stress on the knee joint, resulting in pain. This motion can also affect the hip, and often the lower back as well. A rigid foot (where the foot rolls outwards), can also cause the body to mal-adjust resulting in pain in the knee, hip or back.

A comprehensive Biomechanical Assessment and a Video Treadmill Gait Analysis can determine if your feet are affecting the rest of your body and establish a treatment plan for your individual needs. If the origins of your knee, hip or back pain extends beyond your feet and lower limbs, your Podiatrist may refer you a health professional best suited to treat your condition.
