How Standing on Your Feet All Day Can Be Damaging to Your Health

Standing on your feet all day is not only tiring, but this can also be damaging to your overall health. In fact, did you know that simply standing for a long period of time can lead to higher risks of short-term problems such as leg cramps, backaches, bunions and more. However, many of these unwanted issues can be resolved with a few of our custom arch supports from Foot General.

Jobs where you may be standing for extensive periods of time

For those of us who absolutely can’t stand desk jobs, we may often look for other options. These options may include jobs such as:

  • Police Officers
  • Chefs
  • Teachers
  • Nurses
  • Construction Workers
  • Bartenders
  • Retail Workers
  • Flight Attendants

However, while these jobs avoid your typical office desk job, they do require you to stand for long periods of time. Standing for a long period of time lead to health issues such as:

  • Gout
  • Kidney Stones
  • High Cholesterol

Of course, these are more serious conditions that are less often to occur. However, with that in mind, it would be better to take care of your foot pain before these long-term issues even have a chance to occur.

So, if you want to help reduce foot pain in order to decrease the risk of further health issues, consider stepping up your footwear collection. This may include investing in custom arch supports to insert into your comfortable shoes. In addition to this, you can even go further with our custom shoe modifications.
