Many people who have to stand all day, often for work, deal with persistent foot pain. If this describes you, don’t simply push through it—it’s not a normal part of life, and we can help!
One of the best remedies for persistent foot pain from standing is custom orthotics. Often times, feet struggle with spending so much time on hard, flat surfaces, and certain foot shapes or types may not be as effective at absorbing shocks and spreading pressure evenly as others. Custom orthotics are created to fit your unique feet exactly, and can provide the extra cushioning, support, and even motion correction you need to keep the pain away all day long!
Other handy tips include:
- Bringing in a cushioned mat to stand on, if you spend a lot of time standing at a specific workstation.
- Taking regular breaks to sit and rest your feet.
- Wiggle your toes and stretch regularly to keep your blood flowing.
