1. The feet are the body’s foundation. Just like a building, fixing problems in the foundation can help with problems throughout the structure.

“…I have to load 5,000 pigs every 4 months. This entails many hours of walking on cement alleyways. I couldn’t help load without my Foot Levelers!” –Farmer Donita Koberg Platz of Minnesota

2. “Bad” feet are linked to bad backs—the research proves it. Fixing bad feet can make a huge difference in the treatment of low back pain.

3. Your feet may feel just fine—but they could be causing problems up above. Foot imbalance or dysfunction is often “silent,” but it can have ripple effects, transferring problems (and pain) to the low back.

4. Your feet are as unique as your fingerprints; your orthotics should be too. Only custom orthotics can account for differences between your right and left foot, and can include accommodations for your specific feet, body and low back pain.

5. Custom orthotics are built just for you based on a highly detailed 3D scan of your feet. Performed by a skilled health professional, the scan is sent to Foot Levelers’ team of trained design technicians, who in turn create your 100% unique, tailored product.

Don’t be fooled by the over-the-counter junk; these mass-produced, generic insoles can actually worsen your pain over time. Most cases of low back pain respond to conservative care like Chiropractic adjustments plus custom-made orthotics; no need for dangerous surgery or addictive drugs. 

For lasting pain relief, improved biomechanics and health benefits that radiate throughout the body, choose custom orthotic support. Your feet, and your body, will thank you.

    My lower black has been hurting lately, and I’m not sure what to do. It makes sense that I would want to try having some orthotics made for me! It’s interesting that an altered stance can change your spine position.

    I didn’t know that “bad” feet are linked to bad backs. That is great to hear that fixing bad feet can make a huge difference on the lower back. I know my mom has been having some lower back pain. If getting her orthotics could help that would be great! Thank you for the information!

    Thank you for the 5 reasons to choose custom orthotics for the treatment of low back pain. I definitely agree that while you may not notice any discomfort or pain in your feet, it can definitely be causing problems in your hips and back. An imbalance in your feet could be causing your hips to grind or back to sway unevenly causing spinal or muscle issues.

    I never knew that orthotics treatment can be very effective in treating back pain. Thanks for sharing this wonderful article and increasing my knowledge.

    I never realized that there’s a connection between bad backs and bad feet because treating foot problem can make a huge difference in treating your low back pain. My husband noticed that everytime his right foot aches, his back aches too. It’s important for him to know the best treatment so he can feel comfortable again in doing his everyday routine. I will make sure to consider orthotics for my husband. Thanks!

    It’s interesting how you said that a foot injury can actually influence pain your back. I’ve been having pain in my back for a few months now because of a car accident. Hearing that the pain could be in my feet is really interesting news. I’ll have to talk to a doctor to see if they could do anything to look into my feet for injuries.

  7. Braden Bills

    My lower back has been hurting lately, and I’m not sure what to do. I didn’t know that it could be caused from feet problems! Maybe it would be a good idea for me to get a professional to help me out with that.

  8. Dave Anderson

    That is crazy that a detailed scan of your feet is sent to a team of design technicians. That sounds like it really is professionally made and can help your back and feet. I am curious if orthotics could help with my foot pain as well as my back pain. Consulting with a doctor would be a good idea.

  9. Sherry Gajos

    Wow, I had no idea that bad feet can cause your back to be bad as well. I’ve been having a lot of back pain and now I wonder if the cause is related to my feet or my shoes, or both. Thank you for the information about how foot imbalance can have ripple effects and be unnoticeable at the source.

    My sister was having a hard time walking and she wants to be able to walk pain-free. It was mentioned here that having the right kind of shoes can help her walk well. Moreover, it’s recommended to go to a trusted foot doctor for quality foot care.
