When you walk down the streets of Anytown, you want to look your best. Unfortunately, much of the ‘stylish’ footwear popular in Salt Lake City can cause severe foot pain and lead to lower back pain as well. Many Provo, St. George, and Bountiful chiropractors treat patients whose symptoms can be traced back to impractical shoes.
Our legs are the foundation for our entire musculoskeletal system. When Salt Lake City residents put any part of their legs or feet in unnatural positions, pain and discomfort are sure to follow.
High heels are the most obvious culprits. Fixing the position of the foot unnaturally will cause the body to compensate by moving in different, awkward ways. When Anytown women wear high heels for any length of time their pelvis will begin to tip forward and the curve of their back will change. Once this happens, the center of gravity is shifted and more compensatory body movements are needed.
Other shoes may pose a problem and lead to pain throughout the body. Whenever your feet are feeling pain, you will find that everything above them is affected. Tender feet will cause your gait to change and that can cause stress on your knees, hips, and back.
Women in Anytown who can’t give up their stylish shoes may want to consider wearing them in moderation. Bring an extra pair of supportive shoes to slip into whenever you can and look for some over-the-counter gel supports in Provo, St. George, and Bountiful shoe stores.
If you have more questions about how your choice of footwear can affect your posture and spinal alignment, contact Chiropractor Chris Johnson.
