Why Do Construction Workers Need Foot Support?

Posted by SelectFlex on July 26, 2019

Construction is hard on your body and most especially your feet and joints. I am really proud of my job being a productive member of society fabricating infrastructure and buildings but have found in my later years my feet have begun to hurt at the end for the day.

Humans have walked on the planet for thousands of years, but over the past 200 years, our environment has changed significantly. Our feet are designed for a softer terrain, but today, we walk on mostly hard, flat concrete surfaces. This forces our feet to flatten and twist with every step, especially wearing heavy boots without the proper insoles.

Foot Pain on the Job and at Home

Even when I’m not at the construction site, my foot issues are made worse by our modern lifestyles. We are more sedentary in our daily lives than ever before, spending much of our time sitting in front of a computer screen, desk, or TV. Our feet are less accustomed to the same level of activity, so when we physically challenge ourselves, the joints, muscles and tendons are put under strain they are not used to.

Most boots come fitted with generic insoles that provide slight relief for a few days. I’ve found these cushioned inserts lack structure and offer minimal arch support. This leaves my feet and arches exposed to repetitive injury and pain due to lack of corrective support, especially as I age.

It took me years on the job before I figured out I can stay on my feet longer with the right kind of foot support. Proper boot insoles that provide arch support help distribute your weight across your foot. Flat-footed people especially need foot support and should use a footwear insole with a deep heel cup to stabilize the back of the foot while distributing weight across the base uniformly.
