"I have three pair of OrthoFeet shoes. Having both athirst in my lower back as well as flat feet, my back and leg pain became severe many time. These shoes have helped ease the pain for which I am very grateful."
Back pain can be felt in both the lower and upper back and its severity can vary greatly. For some people, it is simply an annoyance and for others it is excruciating and debilitating. Back pain can start suddenly or slowly and worsen gradually. It can come as a dull, constant ache, or as a sharp pain, making any movement painful and difficult. Sometimes the pain can radiate from the back on down the leg to the foot. It usually causes decreased range of motion and diminished flexibility in the back. Back pain is also one of the most common reasons people see a doctor and are absent from work.
What causes it? The most common causes of back pain are strain and structural problems. Strain is usually due to lifting heavy objects or lifting them improperly, sudden, awkward or jerky movements, sports injuries, or over activity. Structural problems include anything from injuries to problems with the disks (the areas of tissue that cushion the space between the vertebrae), abnormalities of the skeleton, such as scoliosis, and loss of bone density. An oft overlooked cause of back pain is foot problems. Foot problems, such as over pronation, when the feet roll too far inward toward the arch of the foot, and hyper supination, where the feet are rolled outward, can lead to hip and back problems.
How is it prevented and treated? Standard prevention measures include following proper technique for lifting heavy objects, or avoiding lifting heavy objects altogether, improving posture, and strengthening core muscles. Other treatment measures include pain-relief medication and wearing specially designed back pain shoes for men with orthopedic insoles that decrease over pronation and improve body posture. The best men’s shoes for back pain should also have ergonomic soles that provide excellent cushioning, which works to minimize impacts on the lower back. People with back pain should also avoid wearing worn-out shoes, high-heeled shoes and shoes that are too tight or too wide, as they can aggravate foot pain and cause gait compensation.
