I have had feet surgeries to correct hyperpronation and had reversed due to considerable foot discomfort. This has affected my lower back and sacrum. I have difficulty getting the correct supportive shoes because mt feet are so slim, have considerable fat pad loss, and (healed) broken toes and bunions. I experience a pelvic "tilt" when I walk upon uneven surfaces! Needless to say, life can be a painful experience!!
