Cause of Lower Back Pain.
Biomechanics – Excessive
Because the feet are the very foundation
from which all other joints align, it is easy to understand why even
subtle faulty biomechanics of the lower extremities – principally,
I maintain, excessive pronation of the feet – can cause a domino
effect of stresses and strains on every joint of the body, literally
from toe to head. This in turn will predispose a patient to an acceleration
of the aging process that can include advanced arthritis, and can affect
myriad muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. What this means is that
treatment of a great number of musculoskeletal problems is simply not
complete unless the practitioner has considered faulty biomechanics
of the feet, ankles and lower leg as the root cause. In many cases where
medicine is prescribed to cover pain, where conservative management
of heel spurs, chodromalacia patella, hip pain lower back pain, herniated
discs that do not improve, failed back syndrome and other conditions
related to excessive pronation of the feet, the practitioner has not
looked at lower-extremity biomechanics.
