Flattened arches in your feet can cause the buttock muscles
to stop firing which can lead to an unstable low back.
The hip flexors in the groin must now overwork to compensate
for the buttock muscles going on vacation and no longer working.
This feels like a groin strain which limits mobility in the hips, causing pain in the hips and this continues to inhibit the buttock muscles from working/firing.
Unstable low backs are easily injured with simple tasks like stepping down from the sidewalk!
Some overuse injuries in the feet and mechanical foot pain on walking is an attempt for your feet to assist in stabilizing your hips and low back.
It is imperative with chronic hip and low back pain, not responding to care, that the feet get assessed and corrected from the ground up!
