Why your knee pain could be coming from your foot

Knee pain can really hamper your daily activities. It can be due to many reasons depending upon your age and/or activity level. But did you know it can also depend upon the structure and function of your feet?

The foot is the foundation upon which we walk. If the foot is not functioning or aligned properly it can have significant impacts to the knees, hips, and back.

The poorly aligned foot is often accompanied by a history of foot issues such as tendinitis but not always. Addressing the position of the foot can improve posture and reduce pain in the knees, hips, and back.

Corrective measures can include orthotics which will help support the foot. Sometimes an orthotic may not resolve the poor foot position and surgical correction may be warranted.

If you have pain that you believe may be related to your feet, consider being evaluated by a foot and ankle specialist.
