Whether on the restaurant floor as a waitress, or mixing up drinks bartending, you attend dozens of customers every shift, but what about giving yourself some attention too? You’re on your feet for hours at a time, and without the proper foot support, standing for long periods can result in severe lower back pain to throbbing knee joints. According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), standing all day can have a detrimental effect to a person’s body.
Standing for long periods of time causes a decrease in the blood supply to the lower extremities and therefore increases fatigue and soreness in the muscles. Also, prolonged standing creates an accumulation of blood in certain areas of the feet and legs, which leads to irritated and inflamed veins, otherwise known as varicose veins. In addition, the continuous pressure on a person's feet causes bone misalignment and joint degeneration.
