Tips to Keep Your Feet from Hurting at Work

Your feet take on a lot of responsibility in your lifetime, so it is important that you treat them well. In fact, you will likely walk over 100,000 miles throughout your lifetime! For those who work on their feet for 8+ hours a day, it is ideal to take some extra steps to help ease the pain. Keep these tips in mind if your feet feel sore after a long day.

Get Support

You’ll need to invest in the right arch support to help make your feet feel comfortable throughout the day. Your shoes should fit you well and not be too flat. Our foot doctor in Joliet may recommend custom arch supports to be inserted into your shoes so that you can minimize pain and maximize comfort.

Stretch as Needed

Stretching-based activities like yoga or pilates are beneficial in strengthening your muscles as well as lengthening them. Plus, this is a great way to improve your posture as well, which can take the stress off of your feet.

Wear the Right Shoes

This goes without saying, but the shoes that you choose to wear can make all of the difference in your foot health. Flip flops and sandals may seem comfortable at the moment, but they do not provide the long-term support that you need if you are on your feet for most of the day. Make sure that you choose shoes that are the right size, they provide protection, and they provide support.

Therapeutic Massage

Getting a therapeutic massage once in a while is an easy way to help loosen the muscles in your feet. Even if you give yourself a massage, you will feel the benefits! Use your thumbs to press up against the centerline of your feet in a circular motion, and pause on any spots that feel tender.
