narrow feet, high arch, and sharp heels
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 (alignment) problems as well. Since it has helped her, she wonders if I should try this approach in dealing with my back problems, because of the concerns I expressed about my feet.
Am I a good candidate for orthotics?
