Want to Reduce After-Work Foot Pain? Here Are 4 Healthy Tips, Greece, New York

Are you on your feet all day for work? If so, you might struggle with foot pain and soreness by the time you get home. To keep your discomfort in check, refer to the following tips on how to keep foot pain at bay.

4 Ways to Minimize Foot Pain After Work

1. Use Arch Support

Heel and foot pain often stems from poor support from your shoes. Over time, you may develop a number of chronic issues, such as plantar fasciitis or tendonitis. Put gel or cushion insoles in your work shoes to distribute the pressure in your feet evenly. 

2. Soak in Epsom Salt

foot painEpsom salt has natural anti-inflammatory benefits. Pour some in a bath or wash basin, and soak your tired feet in the warm water for as long as you like after work. Add essential oils, such as peppermint or eucalyptus, to make the soak even more cool and soothing. 

3. Do Stretches 

Once you get home, do a series of calf raising stretches. Stand on your tiptoes and lower your heels back down to the ground 10 times. Follow this with a runner’s stretch by planting your hands against a wall, extending one foot behind you, pressing your heel into the floor, then repeating on the other side. 

4. See a Podiatrist

Regardless of your foot pain levels, it never hurts to make an appointment with a podiatrist. In addition to fitting you for custom insoles, they’ll provide a personalized care plan on how to stay on your feet in a way that’s beneficial for your whole body.
