Custom Orthotics May Be The Help You‘ve Been Looking For…
Most of us have heard the saying, the foot bone is connected to the knee bone; knee bone is connected to the hip bone… this is basically describing the kinetic chain.
The kinetic chain, simply explained, is when one part of the body moves, it effects another area of the body (or several areas of the body). Similar to how one bad tire can ruin the rest of the tires in a vehicle, the same is true of our feet. Breakdown in the feet is something that some times gets over looked when trying to figure out persistent pain. Our feet are our foundation, if the foundation is failing, this can cause problems along areas of the kinetic chain.
Poor arch support can create…
lack of pelvic mobility which can put an immense amount of stress on the lumbar spine, this can result in low back pain. Being able to properly pelvic tilt is important for mobility in the hips, lumbar spine and for the ability to control/stabilize posture. Working on improving pelvic motion is critical to avoiding many different orthopedic type injuries to the back, hip and knee.
Getting a proper/thorough foot analysis should be always considered for chronic, persistent back, hip and ankle pain, as foot breakdown compromises the kinetic chain.
Let’s be clear, I’m not talking about going to a drug store and getting a foot screen for shoe inserts, as this is too generic of a solution. General orthotics, shoe inserts or special shoes could actually add to the problem by over-correcting, or under-correcting foot imbalances.
Rigid orthotics (hard plastic) generally are not the answer either unless required by specific medical conditions. This type of insert doesn’t allow the foot to have much natural motion, which can again compromises the kinetic chain.
In my 20+ years of experience as an athletic trainer, I have found custom orthotics to be a far superior solution compared to generic orthotics/inserts, or special shoes.
