Did you know that your shoes can be the cause of your back and/or leg pain? Many studies have been done in this area. I have read that a running shoe is made to last an average runner between three and six months. Sometimes the shoe doesn’t appear to be worn out but the structural support is gone. Sometimes with a custom shoe orthotic insert, you can gain better support and prolong the life of that shoe. Better support and a properly fit shoe can make all the difference. Bring your running shoes or a pair that you feel may be adding to your back/leg pain and together we can evaluate the shoe and see if custom inserts or even an over the counter insert will help eliminate the problem.
