How Foot Health Care Could Help You
Compromised foot health can be caused by simple issues such as poorly fitting shoes or years of wear and tear. However occasionally there are more complex underlying causes for feet to becoming a problem including cardiovascular issues; diabetes; suppressed immune system or other disease.
If these issues persist it can cause pain, with resultant changes in weight bearing and gait, leading to pain in other areas of the body including the low back. If your foot condition is diagnosed as originating from a more complex source, your practitioner is qualified to refer you for suitable advice or ongoing treatment.
