Standing Correctly

If you are the type of employee that must work all day on your feet, you might be at an increased risk of developing certain foot conditions. For example, cashiers must stand in more or less a static position all day at work. This can be quite detrimental to the health of the feet. To combat the ill effects of standing still all day, a worker might consider standing straight as opposed to being hunched over. This promotes proper alignment. Also, a worker could potentially complement periods of standing still by performing brief exercises. Therefore, how an employee stands can potentially have consequences for their foot health. If you are someone that spends a significant amount of time standing on your feet all day, it is suggested that you reach out to a podiatrist for suggestions on preventing foot problems.

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 foot specialists from Certified Foot 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.
