9 Changes to Make to Your Shoes to Relieve Sciatica Pain

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Mon, Dec 23, 2013 @ 10:30 AM

Back pain, including sciatica pain, can develop from the feet up--that’s why supportive shoes are so important. Non-supportive, ill-fitting shoes can cause changes to your gait. When your feet and legs adjust their movements to compensate for shoe and foot problems, your pelvis may tilt forward, for example. This increases the curvature of the spine, placing excess pressure on the lower back and the sciatic nerve.

Shoes For Back Pain Relief

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Fri, May 25, 2012 @ 06:05 PM

Summer is here and it is time to pull out the flip-flops again. A bad pair of flat flip-flops can lead to back pain symptoms, choose a sandal that supports your arch and keeps your foot stable with support around your heel and the front of your foot. When wearing flip-flops, you tend to alter your gait, taking shorter steps, which can lead to pain in other areas of the body.

Should you stop wearing flip-flops? It depends on what you are doing in those flip-flops. If you are going someplace where you won’t be doing a lot of walking, flip-flops are fine. However, if you will be doing a lot of walking or even standing for longer periods of time, footwear with more stability is a better choice. Everything in moderation!
