Is your footwear to blame for your back pain?

Is your footwear to blame for your back pain? High heels are a common fashionable foot accessory, but they can actually contribute to lower back pain. Wearing heels actually shifts your weight forward, causing a disruption in the natural curvature of your spine. This causes increased stress on your lower back, which can provoke sciatica symptoms. If you must wear heels, limit the height to less than 2 inches, otherwise you should consider swapping those sky high heels for something more comfortable. Here at the offices of William Capicotto we understand that every patient and situation is unique, that’s why we work with our chronic pain patients to find the solution that works best for the individual to restore motion and reduce suffering so you can keep doing the things you still enjoy, call us today at (716) 881-0382 to schedule your consultation.
