Posts for tag: Heel Pain From Standing

Heel Pain Treatment in Cambridge40-hour week? More like 40-hour pain. When you’re standing all day at your job, you put a lot of pressure on the heels of your feet. We see a lot of patients with heel pain from standing. It doesn’t surprise us, since Cambridge has a lot of factories in the area, with construction being one of the top industries around.

Some jobs require standing for the entire work day, which could mean eight to ten hours of strain on your lower extremities. The time you spend standing could cause problems, even if you’re not doing anything to agitate or irritate your feet. This stress could develop into plantar fasciitis, which is a common cause for the aching bones and tendons in your foot. Here are some tips to head off heel pain.

Ask your employer to provide padded mats for the area where you stand. The cushion from the mat takes stress off your heels. If you feel particularly sore after work, don’t shy away from the tried and true method of Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation. Incorporate stretching into your routine before work to minimize pain and swelling afterwards.

Shoes with more support, like athletic footwear, could be just the change you need. You can also place gel inserts in your shoes, which would absorb some shock and relieve discomfort. You may want to purchase an orthotic shoe specifically for work. At Achilles Custom Orthotics and Footcare, one of our main specialties is orthotics. We have a laser and a contact scanner to create a unique design for you—right in our office.

We know how heel pain from standing can be annoying, especially when you feel like you can’t do anything about it. Call Chiropodist Douglas Broad at Achilles Custom Orthotics and Footcare in Cambridge at (519) 624-4122, or schedule an appointment on our website. We’ll help you stand against pain.
