Feet At Work
Feet at work can take a pounding with the daily demands of your job. Walking, standing for long periods, lifting, jumping in or out of machinery – all place your feet under pressure. While you are working your feet may absorb up to three times your body weight and working feet can travel up to 25 kilometers in one day!
Foot problems that often occur at work include stress fractures, sprains, strains, corns, callus, ingrown toenails, tinea, pins/ needles, numbness and over heating feet. Some of these problems can be caused by excessive pressure and / or ill fitting footwear. Deep arch pain, ball of the foot pain, or heel may be related to muscular strain, which is associated with poor foot posture. At InnOvate Podiatry we can assess all of these troubles and educate you on what we can do to remove these issues as even minor irritations can put a dampener on your work day!
The importance of correct footwear and support at work can not be underrated.
In almost all work places there is a risk of slips, trips, falls or hazardous objects to avoid. Using safe and correct footwear is necessary to protect your feet. Always have your feet measured for length, width and depth as it’s important to be specific for your requirements.
