Your feet are the foundation of your body. They support you when you're standing and they help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from damaging stress as you move around. Your feet may not be hurting, but if you’ve got pain in your neck, back, hips or knees, your feet should be evaluated by your chiropractor. Why?
Studies show that at birth, most of us have perfect feet. By age 20, 80% develop some type of foot problem, and by age 40, foot problems plague virtually everyone.
Your feet are the foundation for healthy posture. If the arches in one or both of your feet collapse, your body will not get the correct postural support. Like the foundation of a building, your body’s foundation, your feet, must be stable to support the weight above it.
Movement at one joint affects movement at other joints. And every time your foot hits the ground to take a step, you are passing that imbalance all the way up your skeletal structure. As your body compensates, stress is added to other body parts, including hips, knees and ankles, causing pain.
