If you look at someone’s back, you’ll see that the spine runs straight down the middle. When a person has scoliosis, their backbone curves to the side.

Spinal anatomy is a remarkable combination of strong bones, flexible ligaments and tendons, large muscles and highly sensitive nerves. It is designed to be incredibly strong, protecting the highly sensitive nerve roots, yet highly flexible, providing for mobility on many different planes.

Once we have back pain, we’re driven to know what’s wrong and what it will take to relieve the pain and prevent a recurrence.

“A custom orthotic puts your foot in an ideal position at every stage of walking, running and pivoting,” said David A. Schofield, the president of the American Podiatric Medical Association, which represents more than 12,000 podiatrists. “You’ll be at your most strong and at your maximum efficiency.”
