When people think about shoes that cause back pain, they think about high heels. However, high heels aren’t the only shoes that can hurt your back. In fact, flats and flip-flops do just as much damage as high heels. So, whether you are looking to eliminate back pain or you would like to prevent it, you need to stay away from those types of shoes and you need to find a pair of shoes that are comfortable and supportive. We have a variety of comfort shoes at River Valley Comfort Shoes that are perfect for those who suffer from or would like to prevent back pain from ever occurring. Here is what you need in a shoe for back pain relief:

  • Motion and Stability Control – You need to find a pair of shoes that allows your foot’s muscles to move properly as you are walking, but you should also feel stable when you walk. Comfort shoes with motion or stability control are ideal for individuals who have a flat arch, which tends to be common in overweight individuals.
  • Extra Support – If you don’t have adequate support for your feet, then there will be abnormal movement, which is one of the primary reasons for feet-related back pain.
  • Proper Arch Support – Depending on the type of arch that you have, you need to look for proper arch support. If you have a normal arch, then this isn’t something you need to worry about. However, if you have a high arch, you need to look for a shoe with high arch support, as back pain is very common in those with high arches.

If you need help finding the perfect comfort shoe that will help relieve or prevent your back pain, please don’t hesitate to reach out for help here at River Valley Comfort Shoes. We are happy to help you find a pair of shoes that will support your back and help you lead a pain-free life.
