If you feel pain in your lower back and you don’t remember injuring it, the discomfort may be coming from your feet. Many people ignore foot pain. But you should not dismiss long-term foot pain as it could be the cause of problems in your back, hips, knees, and ankles.
Think about this. Every bone in our body connects to another bone at the joint. If a bone is out of position, it affects the next, over-stressing it and causing an adverse reaction throughout your body. When you have a problem with your feet, you tend to adjust and change the way you walk. This shift works its way through the entire lower portion of your body, changing the way your bones and joints work together and could cause pain. Over the course of time, this may lead to a breakdown in cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, and ultimately lead to arthritis.
