Consider your Feet before Back Surgery

Common Misconception:

Back surgery is all it takes and I’ll be as good as new.

It is true that in some cases back surgery will indeed be inevitable if the damage to the tissues has been considerable. However, even if the patient does indeed require one of these highly invasive procedures, they will only be addressing the symptoms. If the cause for the tissue damage to the back is a body imbalance originating in the feet as a result of partial talotarsal dislocation, the symptoms will inevitably return and worsen until the cause is addressed. This is why we often see cases where further back surgeries are needed some time after the initial one was performed. The imbalance coming from the feet will simply shift to a different weakest link time and time again, until the source of the imbalance at the foot level is corrected.
