Study identifies the benefit of improving walking patterns with shoe inserts on low back pain

by MASS4D® Insoles November 07, 2018

MASS4D® Medical Review

One of the crucial causes of low back pain is a condition called sacroiliac joint dysfunction; people with this condition often suffer from an unbalanced muscle structure.

With this type of structural imbalance, the lower body is unable to move in a healthy manner which eventually leads to pain in the lower back. 

This is why it becomes necessary to improve overall posture, and restore balance and stability to the upper and lower body.

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is closely related to differences in leg length, and problems in the foot structure often need to be considered as well.

Previous studies have reported that slightly raised heels can have a positive effect on the muscles of the back which can help in treating low back pain.

The authors of this study sought to find out the effect of walking with shoe inserts on movement and pain in people with the condition.

For this purpose, they selected thirty people with chronic low back pain and divided them into two groups – one group received gait training with shoe inserts while the other did not receive any such treatment.

At the end of the study, the authors observed that the group receiving training with shoe inserts had decreased pain because of the reduction in abnormal posture alignment and mechanical stress on the body.

It was noted that the shoe inserts may have also helped in minimising the effects of leg length differences, helping the patients walk better with less stress on the back.

Gait training with shoe inserts also helped improve the function of the spine.

MASS4D® Insoles can also help in further reducing stressful movement of the body that is caused by foot posture problems such as flat feet. This is achieved by providing strength to the arch muscles in the form of a supportive design that prevents the foot arch from flattening on to the ground.

These insoles are crafted by foot experts after a careful consideration of the impact of foot posture problems on the body. As a result, MASS4D® helps in the improvement of overall posture alignment to bring you visual results within weeks of wearing the product.
