From Head to Toe: How Your Feet Relate to Back Pain

The feet are the foundation of your body and can have a major influence on various muscles, joints, and other body parts. Every time you take a step, entities in your feet moving all the way up to your neck are playing a role.

Foot Pain

Many people would assume that if they are experiencing foot pain, there must be an issue with their feet. Although this is a possibility, many times foot pain directly relates to lower back issues. For instance, if you have a pinched nerve in your lower back you may experience pain in your feet and legs.

The Sciatic Nerves

The sciatic nerves run from your lower back down to your toes. They are the two largest nerves in your body, and pain associated with these nerves is known as sciatica. Chiropractic treatments such as Flexion Distraction or stabilizing orthotic products like Foot Levelers can be extremely helpful in reducing this pain. Merckling Family Chiropractic offers these treatments and many others and Dr. Merckling will put together the best possible treatment plan to address your specific issues.
