Chiropractic Washington DC, your feet affect your back.

Things that most doctors don’t know – Chiropractic Washington, DC

foot problems can cause back and neck pain

Your feet are responsible for your spinal support.

Does your chiropractor look to your feet for your chronic neck or back pain? First of all your feet are the foundation for your body. If your feet are out of alignment, or if you are wearing shoes that are not healthy for you, you can have pain anywhere in the body, especially the low back and neck. Your feet are responsible for your “Positive Support Mechanism”. As your feet are flat on the floor and the arches of your foot (all three) are being equally stretched, your body turns on its spinal support muscles. This keeps your spine erect and keeps the healthy curves in your spine.

Watch this video on how the positive support mechanism works and how a professional applied kinesiologist will test to see if it is working properly.

Secondly, when you walk there is sensory information that is sent up to the brain from the feet that tell the body which muscles to turn on and off and at what time. This is a articulate and synergistic process and this timing is crucial for a healthy back and neck. If your feet are misaligned or if you are wearing shoes that are not good for you then this process might not be working properly.

A doctor who proficient in Professional Applied Kinesiology can diagnose your foot function and can see if your chronic problems are due to your feet. It is really a very simple process but it is one that most doctors don’t know.

  1. Dear Drciprian,
    I just stumbled across this and, In today’s society, much value is put on the way people look and how they dress. This is not surprising because a person’s status is usually equated with their fashion. The belief that the more fashionable a person is, the more he or she earns because designer items are generally very expensive. The Hollywood and MTV fashion mania affirm this notion with celebrities showing off and posing for the cameras wearing designer clothes and shoes. Unfortunately, fashion stylists and designers, in their quest for individualism and unique styles, often create looks that are attractive but neither comfortable nor practical. Women, more than men, are the usual victims of fashion trends. Statistics show that more women are willing to sacrifice comfort for the sake of looking fashionable. This is the problem according to Dr. Jerome McAndrews, the ACA’s spokesperson, because tight clothes and high heels disrupt the body’s balance and cause muscle strains. Practitioners of chiropractic medicine also agree since most of the complaints of their female patients are not caused by sports but by excessive wearing of uncomfortable clothes and shoes.

      Thank you Natalie!

      I always tell my patients to use extreme foot ware selectively and responsibly. Sure, wear them out to a show, a dinner or an event but don’t use them for everyday.
