What do hair stylists, healthcare workers, and retail associates have in common? They are all on their feet all day. In the active world of service providers, where long hours, constant movement, and physically demanding tasks are the norm, the toll on the body can be substantial. Standing and walking for long periods of time takes a toll on your health–especially on your back, legs, and feet. But, when your paycheck relies on how fast you hustle and how productive you are, then you can’t neglect tools that will boost your performance. This blog explores the challenges faced by service workers and introduces an effective solution – orthotic inserts – to help alleviate these issues and enhance overall well-being.



Orthotic inserts. The newest addition to your tools of the trade…




Conventional solutions

Employers play a crucial role in mitigating the adverse effects of prolonged standing, walking, and activity on their workforce. Providing ergonomic workstations, anti-fatigue mats, and regular breaks can contribute to reducing the strain on employees. Encouraging proper footwear and investing in comfortable, supportive shoes can also make a significant difference.


Also, it might be the last thing you want to do after a long day on your feet, but stretching and agility exercises are recommended to improve stamina and pain relief.



Be proactive about your comfort

Jobs that necessitate prolonged standing have undeniable consequences on both physical and mental health. As individuals continue to contribute their valuable skills and efforts to such professions, it becomes imperative for employers and policymakers to prioritize measures that safeguard the well-being of the workforce. Through a combination of ergonomic practices, supportive environments, and awareness, we can strive to create workplaces that promote health and vitality even in roles that demand prolonged periods on one's feet.


That said, not all work environments are perfect. Even when steps are taken to relieve the pressure on the workforce, there always seems to be more that could be done. All too often, the footwear, crucial to supporting the daily productivity of service-based businesses, gets overlooked. 


Even if your company can’t cover the costs, service workers often have to foot the bill on their own tools of the trade. When it comes to warding off fatigue and pain, a solid pair of orthotic inserts should be at the top of your shopping list. 


Orthotic shoe inserts: essential tools of the trade


Some companies provide their workforces with personal protective equipment (PPE). Still others include health and wellness stipends as part of the benefits packages. In either case, check with your benefits provider to see if orthotic shoe inserts can be covered by one or the other provision. 


Even if for some reason you don’t have carte blanche to purchase your preferred orthotic inserts, you may want to foot the bill yourself (sorry, a little orthotics humor). Service workers often have to purchase tools of the trade themselves. 


Think, shears, hair dryer, comb… orthotic inserts.


Make your job easier by leveling up your footwear. Orthotic shoes and orthotic inserts are two great options to consider here. With the proper foundation, you can have support, alignment, and extra energy for those long shifts.
