Foot Levelers Orthotics + Chiropractic Care Reduce Chronic Low Back Pain

 

A recent study: “Shoe Orthotics for the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized Controlled Trial” have found that patients reported a 40.4% improvement from their lower back pain with Foot Levelers Orthotics combined with regular chiropractic care. It had also found that patients felt a 32.3% improvement in overall function with continued chiropractic treatments.

Approximately 80% of adults experience low back pain in their lifetime. It is also the leading cause of disability worldwide and often the only choice for treatment seems to be prescription drugs. Patients are now trying to find other means of treatment without the side effects.

Foot Levelers orthotics can improve your overall health by supporting your foundation. The feet are the foundation of the body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run. Feet also help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from stress as you move. This study confirms that custom orthotics and chiropractic care are a powerful and effective treatment of low back pain.

The study was conducted over 12 weeks with 225 patients that had symptomatic low back pain for at least 3 months. Their conclusion: “six weeks of prescription shoe orthotics significantly improved back pain and dysfunction compared with no treatment. The addition of chiropractic care led to higher improvements in function.” Functional Orthotics

“The study unequivocally confirms what we have known for over 65 years: Foot Levelers custom orthotics are a powerful first-line treatment in the battle against LBP.” says Kent S. Greenawalt, CEO of Foot Levelers, “There is significant scientific evidence that explains the foot-spine connection, but the bottom line is that using Foot Levelers to balance and support the feet—the foundation of the body—helps balance and support the spine. This study is another striking development in the case for evidence-based, conservative care of LBP, which in the face of America’s ongoing opioid crisis, is more important news than ever.
