Working Feet

We spend a third of our days at work, so it’s important to stay comfortable on our feet while we’re there - regardless of whether we’re sitting down at the office, on our feet as a personal trainer, or anything in between. 

 

Podiatrists can help you stay comfortable on your feet at work, as well as help you manage the stress that repetitive movements performed at work may place on your bones, joints and muscles. Your Podiatrist can:

 

  • Help you recover from pain or injuries that affect you at work

  • Help you manage injuries sustained at work

  • Apply appropriate management strategies to reduce the likelihood of the pain or injury coming back in the future

  • Optimise your comfort and the way you move at work

 

They can do this by:

 

  • Performing tailored biomechanical assessment of your lower limbs 

  • Using orthotics to alter your foot biomechanics

  • Retraining the way you move

  • Prescribing physical therapy (strengthening and stretching) exercises to promote healthy lower limb function

  • Recommending work-specific footwear that adds support and stability

  • Referring appropriately where further investigations are required

 

If you want to feel more comfortable and less tired during work, book in with your Podiatrist to see how they can help you specifically.
