Heel Posture Plays Role in Back Pain.

A recent study set out to investigate the influence of calcaneal (heel) position on the pelvic and trunk alignment of ten healthy subjects. Using 3-D motion analysis, the researchers found that calcaneal inversion (commonly seen among those with a high arch) can affect the alignment of the pelvic and trunk, increasing the risk for back pain. The findings reveal the importance evaluating the foot and ankle when assessing low back pain patients.
