Possible Foot Conditions That Can Result From Standing

Monday, 08 June 2020 00:00

Many people who stand and walk for the majority of the day for work may experience tired and aching feet. The feet are considered to be the foundation of the body, and people can generally feel tired when foot pain is present. Conditions that can occur as a result of standing for extended periods of time can include blisters and corns. It is also possible to develop the painful ailment that is known as plantar fasciitis. Relief may be found when shoes that are worn fit properly, in addition to soaking the feet at the end of the work day. Research has shown it is beneficial to perform gentle foot stretches throughout the day, and it may help to wear custom made orthotics. If you would like additional information about how to alleviate foot pain, please consult with a podiatrist for professional care.

While working on the feet, it is important to take the proper care of them. For more information about working on your feet, contact Dr. Joshua David Scoll from Pennsylvania. 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Philadelphia and Bensalem, PA. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
