Back pain / pain from overtension The causes of back pain can vary greatly. It would therefore be wrong to claim that foot orthoses — whether conventional or sensorimotor — can help every patient with back pain. Because every pain patient is different, generalizations are simply not possible. Anyone who has been suffering from back pain for a long time should take advantage of the variety of treatment options following consultation with their physician. Our experience from the last 15 years, however, shows that many patients with back pain can also be helped with foot orthoses — especially when instabilities in the foot or leg axes have forced them to adopt poor posture and compensatory movement patterns. Under no circumstances are PROPRIO® foot orthoses meant to replace other interventions such as physiotherapy or pain therapy. Nevertheless, they can provide relief to painful structures by improving muscular foot stability.
