Suffering From Back and Knee Pain? Visit a Pedorthist

This spring a 30-year-old, female patient came to see me for an assessment in my Kingston clinic because she was suffering back pain and sciatica from a herniated disc. In the past, the young woman had been able to control her pain by walking but the pain in her knees and back had become so severe she could no longer walk more than 10 to 15 minutes at a time. When I met with her she was experiencing serious discomfort because she was unable to walk long enough to control the pain from the herniated disc and she was feeling depressed from the lack of exercise as she had previously been a runner and a regular visitor to the gym.
