Sore feet"Don't tell my feet, my achy breaky feet. I just don't think they'd understand." After a long day of standing on the job and pounding the pavement, you've been asked to work overtime. Whether you're a nurse, a chef, server, sales person, or construction worker, you'd like the extra hours, but you'd also like to keep off your sore feet. Dr. Michael Stein and Zeindelin Ahmad, DPM, want to help prevent foot pain in the workforce and offer tips to dealing with sore feet on the job.

If your job requires standing in one place for long periods of time, you may want to look into cushioned floor mats. An extra layer of cushion under your feet could be the difference between aching feet and a happy employee. You don't have to stop at the office. Get cushioned floor mats for your own kitchen or work station at home!

If floor mats are out of the question, we can provide you with custom orthotics. Our orthotics will support your feet and ankles where they need it most. Coupled with a pair of supportive shoes, your feet are in for a treat.

Another thing you can do to prevent foot pain: stretch properly. Prepare your feet for the day by warming up the ligaments and muscles in your feet. Try rolling your arch on a can of soup for five minutes when you wake and stretch your calves before walking out the door.

The standing workforce is plagued with foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis. Keep your feet from aching, burning, and throbbing by trying these methods.  If you've practiced good foot care and still can't find relief, make an appointment with one of our California locations by calling (510) 483-3390. We serve Pleasanton, San Leandro, and Los Gatos, CA.
