I wrote this book because too
many people suffer from foot and ankle pain unnecessarily.

The workplace is often where fashion statements are made, but it is also a place where major foot problems can start or become worse. Towering in high heels when you have to be on your feet all day may not be a good idea when it comes to the health of your feet. If you work in a hazardous environment, the wrong shoe choice may leave your feet at risk for serious injury.

When choosing the right shoes for work, don’t suffer for fashion’s sake, and always remember that it is better to be safe than sorry. If you have a job that requires a lot of standing or walking long distances to and from work, wear the right shoes. Ladies, consider a low, chunky heel. Find a pair that fits your foot type and that feels comfortable from the start. A thicker sole with a bit of a platform will give your feet a bit extra cushioning and shock absorption as well. Your shoes also need to have adequate room to accommodate for any present foot problems such as high arches, flat feet, bunions, or hammertoes.

If you don’t know your foot type or have trouble finding shoes that fit well, we can help. We encourage our patients to bring in their old shoes, as we can often tell a lot by how and where the shoes are worn down. Men often don’t give a lot of attention to shoe shopping,’ but foot problems can affect anyone and footwear is one of the largest reasons for foot pain. Another advantage we can offer to keep your feet comfortable at work is a pair of custom orthotics. We can make inserts tailored specifically to your feet that you simply slip into your shoes.

When it comes down to it, what you wear on your feet can make or break your day. If you have foot pain or problems after a long day at work, contact our podiatric office in Washington, PA to make an appointment. Call Dr. Philip Pinsker today at (724) 225-7410.
