Allan Hewick, Registered Physiotherapist

Allan’s interest in exercise physiology was sparked while training for competitive white water kayak slalom as a teenager. He then pursued this passion academically with a degree in Physical Education at McMaster University. This was fine-tuned further when he remained for another degree in Physiotherapy, focusing on treating musculoskeletal dysfunctions and sports injuries.

As we all know the body is connected. Unfortunately, a foot injury can lead to back pain if we are not careful during the healing process. Forces go from the ground up the ankle bone to the knee bone, and to the pelvic area and tail bone. That can cause altered stress and compensating movement in your low back which can hurt. Flat feet can also alter the alignment of the legs and that can cause lower back pain.
