Do You Stand All Day for Work?

Some professionals spend the majority of the working day on their feet. They can range from hairdressers to massage therapists. Sore feet may happen toward the end of the day because of blood pooling in the ankles and feet. It is an obvious choice to wear shoes that are comfortable, preferably with a lower heel and cushioned sole. Foot pain may be reduced while standing on a stress mat. This is a rubber mat that is successful in allowing blood flow to reach the feet, which may help in maintaining good circulation. Additionally, wearing compression socks can help overall blood flow to the body, and can help to reduce strain on the joints and muscles. At the end of the day, many people enjoy soaking their feet. This can be a reward for the feet for standing all day. If you have questions about relief tips from working on your feet, it is suggested that you speak with a podiatrist who can help you with the information you are seeking.

While working on the feet, it is important to take the proper care of them. For more information about working on your feet, contact Scott Samera, DPM from Samera / Foot + Ankle. Our doctor 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.
