Lower Back Pain treatment in Glasgow and Edinburgh
Lower back pain is a common problem which affects most people at some point in their lives and often results in absence from work or depression.
There are numerous causes of lower back pain, including poor biomechanics. Foot posture, such as excess foot pronation (pes planus, flat feet) or foot supination (pes cavus, high arch), can result in a change of position of the knee and pelvis and this can change the load applied to the lower back. In addition, the activity pattern of the muscles of the lower back and hips will change, and the increased stress may result in injury.
