Foot Protection During the Work Day

Tuesday, 16 May 2023 00:00

People who stand for the majority of their work day may experience foot pain. Having aching feet at the end of the workday can make the body tired. Studies suggest it may help to wear thick socks while standing during the day, and this may help to provide cushioning between the feet and the shoes. It is important to ensure the shoes that are worn fit correctly to prevent foot pain. Additionally, when shoes wear out, it is wise to promptly replace them. Many employers understand the importance of taking breaks and recommend using this opportunity to rest and recharge their feet before work is resumed. Most work shoes are made with slip-resistance soles, which can help prevent falls. It is suggested that certain shoes be purchased depending on the job performed. If you would like more information about how to protect your feet during the workday, it is suggested that you speak with a podiatrist who can provide you with helpful tips.

While working on the feet, it is important to take the proper care of them. For more information about working on your feet, contact the podiatrists from Dr. Siegerman & Associates. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.

Working on Your Feet

Standing on your feet for long periods of time can cause stress and pain in your feet. Your whole body may experience change in terms of posture, back pain, bunions, callouses and or plantar warts. There are ways to avoid these conditions with proper foot care, smart choices and correct posture.

Positive Changes

Negative heeled shoe – Choosing this shoe type places the heel slightly lower than the ball of the foot. These are great for overall foot health. Find shoes that fit you correctly.

Go barefoot – Our feet were not designed to be enclosed for all hours of the day. Try to periodically expose your feet to air.

Eliminate Pain

Foot Exercises – Performing simple exercises, incorporating yoga and doing stretches are beneficial. This will allow increased blood flow to the area and muscles of the foot.

Achilles tendon – Stretching the foot out flat on the floor will relax the calf muscles and tendon. These exercises can be performed almost anywhere. Make sure you add these exercises to your daily regimen. 

With a little bit of this information and knowing more about foot health, you will notice changes. Foot stretches and proper footwear will help with pain and prevent further issues.
