Shoes Cause Back Pain

Shoes and Back Pain

Did you know that wearing inappropriate shoes could cause the back to feel stressed? Shoes are cushions, foundations, and levers that we use to walk, stand, run, job, and so on. If one wears correctly, fitted shoes it will promote a healthy posture. On the other hand, if one wears unsuitable fitting shoes, look out feet and back.

The feet are the number one target that starts normal back pain. In short, the first thing that hits the ground when you start to stand or walk is the ball of your foot, i.e. the heel. Once the heel hits the surface, the remaining sections of the foot start to follow, which promotes weight and stress throughout areas of the body. Feet problems alone can lead to back pain. Poor posture causes back pain, yet the condition is often characterized by inappropriate actions we take.

Fact: Wearing high-heels will slowly pull the weight of the entire body forward, thus corrupting the posture and arches of the back. Hold your weapons down women, because in time you will feel pain. High-heels are the leading cause of “Spondylolisthesis. In short, terms, spondylolisthesis is a condition that is caused from slipping frontward on the lower back. (Lumbar)



The toes are designed to provide us support, yet when a person wears high-heels it causes the toes to affect the joints, since the toes will narrow, causing weight or pressure to the spine. Now, high-heels are sexy to both men and women, yet these heels are going to cost you a fortune down the road. You can look good in supported shoes that fit comfortably without damaging your ligaments, tendons, nerves, muscles, and so on.

Sorry to pop your bubbles boys and girls, but shoes that support our spine can reduce the odds of experiencing back pain.

What is the best shoes for standing all day?

Orthotic shoes are recommended. Orthotic shoes will support the feet and weight-bearing joints and muscles. Orthotic shoes have proven to reduce dysfunctions that emerge from the neurological system. In addition, the supportive shoes have proven to reduce injuries and pain emerging from abnormal conditions.

If you are diagnosed with posture conditions, such as osteoporosis, or gait, you can benefit from Orthotic shoes.

Fact: Did you know that you could wear two or more insoles from Dr. Scholl, fitting the insoles into your shoes prior to flipping them over, and achieve balance, which promotes a healthy spine?

Shoes make a difference to our spine, since the feet alone when abnormal can lead to back pain. If you are not wearing, supportive shoes that provide you a comfortable fit, you may want to invest in Orthotic

  1. Great post. I’m a huge fan of Dr. Scholl’s. Having worked in industries where I’m standing all day shoes are a very important purchase. I continue to look for new ways to improve my back and posture so shoes are a big part of that. Thanks a lot.

    • Devon,
      Thanks to your comment on Dr. Scholl’s I feel the same way. I’m going to buy a few and have some of my employees test various types and provide feedback. I supervise a team of several 100 letter carriers that walk a min of 20,000 steps per day. Its because of them these pages have come to be. So many different feet problems daily. I’m looking forward to the tests. Thanks for the idea!

      Cheers

  2. Great Information! I’ve always been a big believer in good shoes but they are getting harder and harder to find. Seems if I wear flats my back and feet just kill me, I do better with just a bit of a heel. Workboots serve me well but tennis shoes kill my feet, what’s up with that?

    • Hmm sounds like you’ve tried various shoes. You may have high arches. It’s not bad just means you may need to look at added arch support a good insert may be worth a try. I represent about 200 letter carriers who walk over 20,000 steps and day. All types of feet. Inserts are a very common thing. Good luck Pam

  3. Very informative post! This post resonates with me. I’ve worn different types of shoes over the years that have resulted in back pain so my doctor advised me to buy shoes that are well cushioned. Now, I am very conscious of the type of shoes I buy. If shoes are not well cushioned they are a no no for me. I have heard of Dr. Scholl’s but I haven’t tried that brand. I might try the Dr. Scholl’s brand when next I go shopping. Thanks.

    • Great stuff Bea Glad I could help and enjoy the shopping. Just don’t spend all your money in one place 😉

      Cheers

  4. Some humans are lucky to be able to wear whatever they want. Like Converse. No support whatsoever. Could not wear those but I loved them so much. I woke up to the fact that I need to just wear what is comfortable and be happy with it. thank you for this.
