PODIATRIST, DR. ANDREW SHAPIRO STATES, "NURSES ARE ON THEIR FEET FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME.  HEEL AND ARCH PAIN, PAIN IN THE BALL OF THE FOOT, BUNIONS, AND HAMMERTOES ARE SOME OF THE FOOT HEALTH ISSUES THAT CAN ARISE.  IF THE FOOT IS NOT PROPERLY SUPPORTED, YOU CAN GET HIP PAIN, KNEE PAIN, SHOULDERS AND NECK PAIN.  THE  WHOLE FOUNDATION IS THROWN OUT OF WHACK.  PAIN IS NOT NORMAL.  IF A NURSE EXPERIENCES FOOT OR ANKLE PAIN, SHE SHOULD SEE A SPECIALIST.  STAYING HEALTHY AND COMFORTABLE ON LONG SHIFTS BEGINS WITH THE PROPER FOOTWEAR.  I USUALLY RECOMMEND AN ATHLETIC SHOE.  THEY ARE MADE OF BREATHABLE MATERIALS, ARE SUPPORTIVE WHERE THEY NEED TO BE, AND HAVE ROOM IN THE TOES.  TH EIDEAL SHOE SHOULD BE FLEXIBLE AT THE BALL OF THE FOOT.  HARD HOSPITAL FLOORS ARE NOT VERY FORGIVING, SO HE ADVISED USING CUSHIONED INSOLES.  I ALWAYS TELL NURSES, 'USE YOUR HEAD WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR FEET.'"

WHEN I WAS IN PRACTICE FOR OVER 30 YEARS I NOTICED THAT 2 PROFESSIONS SEEMED TO HAVE A DISPROPORTIONATE PORTION OF MY PRACTICE WAS NURSES AND TEACHERS AND IT SEEMED TO COME DOWN TO THE LENGTH OF TIME THAT THEY SPENT ON THEIR FEET.  PROPER FOOT WEAR IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE FOR EVERYONE.  ONE THING THAT ALL OF OUR FOOT SPECIALISTS / CHIROPODISTS IN MY FOOT CLINIC DO IS SPEND THE TIME TO EDUCATE EACH AND EVERY PATIENT REGARDING PROPER FOOT WEAR.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES COMPETENT, HONEST HIGH QUALITY ADVICE, FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE RTO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
