Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
If you take a look at your oldest pair of shoes and notice that the heels are worn unevenly – either more on the inside or more on the outside – this is a significant observation, as uneven shoe heels may point you to the cause of your back pain.
How are the two connected? Let’s start at the beginning; how you walk. The human skeletal framework and how you walk is a major factor in how the weight bearing joints in your body (such as your hips and the vertebrae in your back) wear.
As you walk, if you excessively wear down either the outside or the inside of your shoe heels, in most cases this can and will dramatically change the position of your pelvis (your two hip bones connected by your sacrum). Both of these heel wear patterns have been linked to a forward rotation of the hip bones, which can and will unlevel/tilt the position of your pelvis.
You can see this forward rotation of your hip bones by looking at your belt line. Your belt line will be lower on the side that your pelvis is tilted downward.
How Is This Creating Your Back Pain?
Your pelvis is the foundation of your entire spine. When your pelvis is level, your entire spine is level and stable. This means that there are no excessive twists or compressions between the adjacent vertebrae in your spine.
But if your pelvis is not level, your spine is not level and it becomes unstable. This means there are increased twists and/or compression between adjacent vertebrae in your spine, usually first starting in your low back. The end result is back pain.
Getting To The Bottom Of Your Uneven Shoe Heels And Finding The Cause Of Your Back Pain
So let’s start at the top and work our way down: You have back pain because your spine is unlevel. Your spine is unlevel because your pelvis is unlevel. Your pelvis is unlevel because your hips are forwardly rotated. Your hips are forwardly rotated because you are unevenly wearing down the heels of your shoes.
This takes us to the bottom line – What’s causing your shoe heels to wear down unevenly?
A common reason for uneven shoe heels is having an inherited, abnormal foot structure – either the Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity.
I have written an extensive amount of information on these two common foot structures that cause back pain and chronic pain throughout the entire body. You will find this information in the hundreds of articles written on this site.
Reading the Curing Chronic Pain website will give you more information about the abnormal foot structures Professor/Dr. Rothbart discovered that cause many forms of chronic muscle and joint pain and help you determine whether an Initial Phone Consultation with him might be helpful.
For a more complete explanation of the Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity, read: Abnormal Foot Structures That Cause Chronic Pain.
As you learn more about Professor/Dr. Rothbart’s innovative therapy, you may find that addressing and effectively treating your foot structure may be the missing link to ending your long time battle with unrelenting muscle and joint pain.
