Work related foot problems
We all know that regular maintenance and a yearly MOT is vital to keep a car running smoothly, yet most of us overlook how important it is to care for our feet. Hidden away in shoes, we don’t give them much thought. Standing for long periods may cause pain or discomfort to the feet, ankles, knees and hips, as well as to the back and neck.
