Although the right shoes can ameliorate certain problems, sometimes foot pain is caused by biomechanical issues. One common condition nurses experience is plantar fasciitis, or inflammation of the thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes, said podiatrist Julia Overstreet, DPM, director of the American Foot Care Nurses Association in Bellevue, WA.

A tell-tale sign of plantar fasciitis is stabbing pain in the heel with the first few steps in the morning, and the pain may return after long periods on the feet. The discomfort is usually the result of pressure placed on the plantar fascia. Wearing arch supports for four to six weeks can often remedy the problem — as long as nurses wear them at all times except in bed or in the shower, Overstreet said.
