Lower Back & Hip Pain

 Lower back pain is often associated with excessive pronation (‘flat feet’) which can cause the pelvic cage to rotate forwards, causing a ‘sway back’ appearance, placing undue stress on the lower lumbar region.  When the pelvic cage is incorrectly aligned, muscles in the hips and lower back often tighten, resulting in aches and pains. 

 

Symptoms

Symptoms can be similar for functional and structural leg length discrepancies, including:

  • Lower back pain
  • Hip pain 
  • Headaches (including migraines)
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Osteoarthritis in joints
  • Poor posture
