Working on Your Feet may Affect Overall Body Health

Monday, 14 September 2020 00:00

There are many people who spend the majority of their working day standing up. The feet may feel achy and tired at the end of the day, and this may be the result of restricted blood flow. It is beneficial to wear shoes and socks that fit properly, which may help to prevent uncomfortable foot conditions from developing. People that stand at work for extended periods of time throughout the day may notice it can take a toll on overall body health, and may even be interested in pursuing a different line of work where sitting down is an option. It is not your imagination that your standing job feels mind-numbing as well as foot-numbing. Studies show that too much time on your feet may lead to reduced mental response. If you would like additional information about how working on your feet can affect your health, please consult with a podiatrist.

While working on the feet, it is important to take the proper care of them. For more information about working on your feet, contact our podiatrists from CNY Foot Surgery & Podiatry Care. 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.
