How it feels

Three different phrases describe abnormalities of the curves of the back.

The Scoliotic curve is observed looking at a person from the back while the Kyphotic curve focuses on the upper back when looking at the person from the side. Lordosis typically refers to the lower back looking from the side.

Viewed from the back, the spine is supposed to be straight.  Scoliosis means that the back has undesirable lateral curves either in a "C" or "S" shape.  Even mild scoliosis often leads to muscle pain in the back and pain elsewhere in the body because of postural compensation patterns. 

The head forward posture increases the kyphotic curve.  The exaggerated hunch of the upper back is often associated with a flat lower back and may develop into a Dowager's Hump.  

Too much curvature in the lower back is often referred to as swayback. All these conditions lead to muscle pain, but  excessive lordosis can also contribute to disc problems in the lower back. 

Improper spinal curves can become debilitating.

Common Causes   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •   •

Scoliosis, Kyphosis and excessive Lordosis, if not the result of an injury, is often congenital or postural.  Postural changes to the Scoliotic, Kyphotic and Lordotic curves often happen when the hips are unbalanced.  Looking from the front, one hip may be elevated, and looking from the side, the hips may be rotated too far forward causing a sway back, or backward causing the lower back to flatten.  This pelvic imbalance often starts with a physical or a functional leg length discrepancy. Hyperpronation is one of the most common causes for pelvic imbalances.




Progressing toward Dowager's Hump

How to eliminate the pain

Because hyperpronation causes a functional short leg, reducing hyperpronation will even the leg length and level the pelvis such that the spine is supported from a level plane. 

The body seeks to level and straighten itself naturally when properly supported.  

Reducing hyperpronation also rotates the pelvis posteriorly (to the back) which changes both the Kyphotic and Lordotic curves of the back.  A small change in the curves of the back may be all that is needed to reduce back pain and improve posture.

If you hyperpronate, your arches drop from non-weight bearing (sitting with your feet on the ground) to weight bearing (standing).  When your arches drop, your ankles roll in and your heels lean in (evert) as illustrated in the picture.  Even a small amount of hyperpronation can cause changes in the spinal curves.

The Solution - Posture Control Insoles®

Posture Control Insoles® do something no other orthotics can do:  Posture Control Insoles® are the only foot orthotics that naturally reduce hyperpronation by using your own muscles. Instead of weakening your feet with arch supports, you build strength through natural motion.

Even if you feel like your ankles are weak or lean out (supinate), chances are that your feet hyperpronate once your heels lift off the ground.  Posture Control Insoles® will naturally restore your foot function and posture by giving your feet - and your brain - a true read of the ground so your muscles can keep your feet and body balanced.  That's why Posture Control Insoles® work for so many different pain symptoms including Scoliosis, Kyphosis and Lordosis pain.

The insoles are guaranteed to work for you.  Trim and wear them for 90 days.  If they do not relieve your symptoms to your satisfaction, you may return them for a full refund including shipping and handling charges.  You can also call us - We'll be glad to help you troubleshoot.
