looking for feetback

While I have for some years had back problems that a chiropracter early on said emanated from my neck, and which has since progressed to more widespread issues concerning my back, I recently have begun to suspect that the real underlying problem has always been my "feet". I am 6 feet tall and have these really narrow feet, a high arch, and big "sharp" heels that always make holes in my socks. The heels of my shoes always showed premature and irregular wear because of the way I walked. (SAS shoes has managed to slow down the process of wearing out my shoes.)

Recently, my wife got her shoes equipped with orthotics to deal with painful feet (bony spurs) and, although it took time for her to adjust to wearing them, she has recently informed me that it has really helped her back problems as well. She said it has proven to help the alignment of her spine overall. She feels they have been very helpful and wonders if I should try this approach in dealing with my back problems, largely because of the discussion that I had with her about my feet.

I'm wondering if anyone can advise me on the merits of orthotics based upon their experience. I would appreciate any "feetback" you can give.
