Orthotics for Work ShoesDoes your job involve a lot of standing? At first, you probably didn’t think that small detail would affect your life. Now, it’s probably all you think about, right? Your feet hurt constantly and it’s starting to feel like you’re working overtime, bringing your foot problems home and into your everyday life. Activities planned for Victoria Day—parades, family get-togethers, and picnics—are starting to sound more like a chore than fun. It’s hard for other people to grasp what you’re going through, but we understand completely at Achilles Custom Orthotics and Footcare. In fact, we can provide you with orthotics shoe inserts that will take care of the pain that’s distracting you.

The most detrimental stage of the gait cycle is the standing period. Your feet are under constant pressure from the weight of your body pushing down, and from the contact of your heels on the hard ground. Excessive pronation, putting too much pressure on the inside or outside of your foot, can put an uneven amount of stress on your arches, heels, toes, and ankles. When you are over or under pronating, your body has to adjust to an unnatural position, which throws your entire frame off balance and may also cause pain in your legs, knees, and lower back. Standing also decreases blood flow to your lower limbs, which increases soreness and fatigue. Some people develop chronic plantar fasciitis, or heel pain, from working in these conditions day in and day out.

You wouldn’t think you would need an insert for your shoe just to stand around, but it will greatly improve your problem. Orthotics can correct your stance and provide cushion, easing your pain at work and at home. We offer rigid models that realign your foot and body to the proper position, and softer models that give you more comfort and absorb shock. These devices slip right into your shoe and should provide immediate relief.

Focus on your job, not your pain. Call Chiropodist Douglas Broad at Achilles Custom Orthotics and Footcare at (519) 624-4122 to order a specially-made pair of supports.
