Walking may seem like the most natural thing in the world to you, but if you have a foot problem, the way you walk may cause chronic pain in other parts of your body. For example, if you have a high arch, you may be putting too much pressure on the outside of your feet when you walk, which could set off back pain. Most lower-back pain is, in fact, a result of abnormal walking caused by foot problems.*
If you have chronic back pain, consider visiting a podiatrist and getting your feet checked. Flat feet or high arches may be the culprit of your pain, and both can be corrected with orthotics.
