We see and help a lot of nurses in the clinic, many of them with tired, painful and achy feet!
Some of the nurses we see are younger and some are in the back ends of their career, however, they all have one thing in common. They are on their feet for long hours on HARD, flat and unforgiving surfaces.
As Podiatrists our job is to give our Nurses clarity. Clarity on:
- What’s wrong (the diagnosis)
- Why it is there (the causative factors)
- What’s the plan (how long will it take and what do we do to get back to our normal activity for both now and long term!)
A major causative factor that we consistently see is the footwear that our Nurses are wearing day in and day out at work. In particular with the hard, flat floors and surfaces that we spend the majority of the day on.
We have put together a list of the best shoes for Nurses. Shoes that are comfy, cushioned and light.
