American’s work wardrobes are taking on new meaning as we continue to shelter in place during the coronavirus pandemic . For many, that means exchanging a suit for a warm-up outfit and leaving shoes at the front door. While this new relaxed wardrobe has its comfort benefits, going barefoot, or simply wearing socks may come with some health and wellness issues.
Walking and standing barefoot for long periods of time, especially on hard surfaces, can cause many foot conditions like heel pain, or
plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, bursitis, capsulitis, sprains, and even stress fractures, just to name a few.
To help keep these conditions from developing, or for those who already require footwear with orthotic devices, we at Advanced Podiatry
recommend wearing a supportive slipper at home, preferably one with a thicker soul, some cushioning, and with enhanced support in the arch.
If you do develop symptoms such as foot ache and pain, the expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Coram, Plainview, Mineola, Williston Park & Maspeth, NY are here for you.
