Increasing activity levels in the springtime can suddenly lead to foot pain. Activities, such as running, cause the force on our feet to increase by up to 7 times our body weight! A 150lb adult can expect over 1000lbs of force to be absorbed by their feet with each running leap. For those occupations requiring long hours on your feet, foot pain can occur year round. Teachers, postal workers, cashiers, construction workers and those involved in the service industry are likely candidates for heel or forefoot pain, as they are on their feet 3 times more than the average person. This adds up to some 30,000 steps per day! You don’t have to live with foot pain anymore.
