These are just a few examples of conditions in the lower limb that may be caused by poor foot mechanics. The hips and the lower back may also be affected. Just because the feet do not hurt, does not mean they are not at fault. Lower limb problems are surprisingly common in all ages, yet many go untreated or are treated unsuccessfully because the cause of the symptoms may not be identified.
