Your foot position in standing will influence your pain.
Why this matters:
Just like the song “the knee bone is connected to the thigh bone”, your foot is connected to your shin, which is connected to your thigh, which connects to your hip, and ultimately your low back. When your feet are turned out, you’re more likely to let the hips drive forward to conserve energy while standing. This is not a bad position to be in, but just like anything else, too much of a good thing can be problematic. Minimize the likelihood that your back or sciatic nerve gets irritated.
Look down at your feet when standing. Are they turned out? Ideally try to keep your feet facing ahead (say 12 o’clock). If you typically stand with the feet turned out, try adding 5 minutes of this position every hour.
