Walking or standing for long periods of time can cause fatigue, and even aching, to legs and feet. Here are some solutions.
Many people live busy lives, sometimes exhausting ones, each day. While some take hundreds of steps during their daily activities, others must stand in a static position for long periods of time. In both cases, this strain on the legs and feet can cause fatigue, even pain.
Tired legs and feet may be caused by one or several factors. This is not a health problem per se, but more often a consequence of too much work or unfavourable conditions for the legs and feet. Excessive tension often causes fatigue.
The factors that can promote this problem include:
In some cases, tired and aching legs and feet can be symptoms of heavy legs syndrome and of chronic venous insufficiency.
A foot care specialist is called a podiatrist. Some people could benefit from seeing one to help a leg or foot problem. In some cases, he/she can prescribe corrective measures.
Before making an appointment with a podiatrist, why not pass by the pharmacy to find some simple solutions? There is a wide array of products for foot and leg care, such as insoles, arch supports, cushion pads, and orthotics of various shapes, sizes and designs. Some even offer additional benefits, such as a stimulating texture that massages the foot throughout the day.
These products can improve comfort while walking or in a standing position and even ease fatigue and pain in the legs or feet (heels, arch of the foot, forefoot, toes, etc.). They can also diminish pain in other areas of the body, especially in the lower back.
Speak to your pharmacist for additional information about tired and aching legs and feet.
