Foot Pain Solutions for the Team
You’d be surprised at how much of an impact all of this has on our team’s feet. Yes, of course, other parts of us also take a beating, but I think shoes and soles are greatly under-looked when it comes to being more comfortable for long periods of time. One might figure that the impact on our soles isn’t enough to worry about because part of the time we are able to have a seat, but even while we are sitting our feet are still planted on the floor firmly to keep our balance. So, even when we are trying to take it easy, our feet are still getting worked.
We did some collective research online to figure out what we could do to make some small improvements to our equipment and clothing and I found a site full of information about shoe insoles and which are best for different kinds of feet. After doing more research, it looks like we cannot just get the same set for everyone, since most of the insoles are made for a particular foot structure. I personally am looking for some orthotics because I have large arched feet. Apparently having proper arch support for your feet can alleviate all sorts of problems like hip and lower back pain, and even helps with posture.
In the end, I’m left thinking why I never made the switch before. I’m wondering why no one else made the switch and preached to me the joys orthotic insoles.
