Having Headaches With Foot And Back Pain? See An Orthotics Specialist

by Freddie Cox

There are many people that deal with headaches and even extreme migraines, that don't realize the problem could be coming from their feet. If you have been fighting headaches and you also have pain in your feet, legs, hips and back or neck, then you may want to see if there is something wrong with your foot bones and skeletal alignment. You could even have a problem as severe as scoliosis which could be causing the pain that you feel in your feet. Here are a few things to discuss with an orthotic specialist.

Skeletal Alignment and Posture Concerns

If your feet aren't aligned properly, this could cause pain all through the body and up into the neck, and this could be triggering the headaches that you have. Have the specialist look at the alignment of your body to see if these concerns are caused by the feet, if you have a problem like scoliosis, and what needs to be done to treat these issues. You may find that wearing corrective foot braces or doing exercises to straighten your feet is necessary to help the problem.

Causes of Foot Pain

If you have pains and aches in your feet because they aren't aligned properly, the orthotic specialist may want to look for these things:

  • Pinched nerves
  • Bone spurs
  • Arthritis
  • Masses

These are just some foot problems that could be caused if your bones aren't in the proper places. To treat these issues, you may need special orthotic shoes, braces, exercises and more. Find out what you can do at home from the specialist to add the pain relief even faster.

Headache Related Issues

The orthotic doctor will then discuss how the feet pain and pain in the joints up to your spine could be related to the headaches that you're having. As you start to correct the orthotic and skeletal issues that plague your body, the headaches should occur less. If this doesn't happen, you want to look into other causes for your headaches.

There are so many ways that you can help with the foot pain that you have, and with the headaches, if you take your time to see a specialist and to find out what the exact problem is. Start treating your issues so you don't have to worry about joint pain in the future, and so you can go on day to day being headache free.

About Me

Coping with Chronic Health Conditions: Tips

Ever since I was a young girl, I have had bad asthma and allergies. I had to stay in the hospital several times when I was in elementary school just to help get my asthma under control and it seemed like I was trying medication after medication with little success. I don't remember all of my childhood health details, since I was so young, but my mother has "filled in the blanks" for me. Thanks to modern medicine and a natural remedy, my health conditions are currently under control and have been for a few years now. I am very grateful for my good health, and I want to "pay it back" to others by creating a blog where I will post my health tips. I hope I can help you learn how to achieve good health!
