My back hurts, why look at my feet?

Improperly supported feet can affect the alignment of all of the structures above. To improve your overall comfort:
Choose shoes with good arch support.
Avoid going barefoot or wearing shoes that lack support (i.e. flip-flops). The following brands of sandals provide better than average arch support: Naot, Fit Flops, Orthoheels, Abeo, Vionic and Yellow box.
Avoid high-heeled shoes or boots (keep heels to a maximum of 1½ inches, especially if you are going to be doing a lot of walking).
“Cross-trainer” athletic shoes tend to provide the best all around support and shock absorption for daily activities.
Patients with fallen arches should consider adding arch supports or orthotics.
Repair or replace shoes with worn soles or heels.
