Foot Problems Can Cause Pain Throughout the Body

According to an article in the January 2001 issue of the Journal of the American Chiropractic Association (JACA), foot imbalances can trigger problems throughout the body - even without perceptible foot pain. Doctors of chiropractic say that foot imbalances can cause structural misalignments that result in a functional "short" leg that contributes to pelvic rotation, spinal subluxations, and neuromuscular imbalances. Walking and bending the foot forward (pronation) is one of the major causes of foot injuries, with ill-fitting shoes being another source of foot problems. Home exercises and/or orthotics can be recommended by your chiropractor to help treat this kind of pain.
