Why do my shoes cause back pain ?
We are a huge believer in footwear and prevention of pain in our Oakville Chiropractic Clinic. Chiropractor Oakville Dr. Steve recommends proper shoes for almost all of his patients. From knee pain to foot pain, its most likely your shoes. Did your foot pain start in the early part of June ? About a month after you pulled out the sandal inventory from your closet ?
How about that back pain ? Oakville chiropractor Dr. Steve Knighton struggles with back pain on a daily basis. His shoe selection saves his life. No pain meds, no NSAIDS, no surgery because he chooses to wear the proper supportive footwear.
Dr. Steve’s at work shoe selection, depending on what mood his back is in.
Plantar Fasciitis; heel / foot pain first step in the morning, caused by tight calves. Probably from those sexy 4 inch heels you wear to work every day.
Bunions and Arch pain, love those ballerina flats and your 20 minute walk from the Go Train to work, yep, that’s causing your arch pain.
Wondering why your knees just don’t seem to be feeling the same after the first week of hot weather in southern Ontario. Look at your work boots, more than 6 month old and you’re on them for 8 hours a day. Time to upgrade.
Ever wonder why you go to Costco or Home Depot and your back starts to kill within 15 minutes of walking on the hard concrete floor. Hard floor plus bad shoes = back pain.
Shoes we recommend:
90% of the population are over-pronators and thus should be in a more supportive shoe.
10% of you need more cushioning and are supinators.
As of 2015 our favorite shoe to recommend to our patients who don’t need or want orthotics is the Asics GT2000. Lots of colors, widths, sizes and an overall great product.
Unsure what type of shoe you need. Come in for a custom gait scan, we can work with your insurance coverage and quite possibly include the shoes in your orthotic purchase.
