Common things that could be causing your back pain




Wearing certain types of footwear can cause you to experience back pain, especially if your shoes aren’t particularly supportive or if you’ve been wearing them regularly for years.

“If the shoes are too flat or unsupportive, they cause overpronation of the foot, [or] flat-footedness. The natural arch in your foot acts as a shock absorber,” said Banks. “When it isn’t there, the force going through the feet travels up to the next spot that can absorb it. This could be your knees, hips, or low back.”

“Heels also are a concern, as they force your body to tip slightly forward,” he added. “Usually, your body compensates by arching backward at the low back, which can cause pain and inflammation in the little joints between the vertebrae, called facets.”
