How to protect your back and body 

According to webmd.com, “Standing five hours a day contributes to significant and prolonged lower-limb muscle fatigue, a small study concluded. This may raise your risk for long-term back pain and musculoskeletal disorders”.

For individuals with jobs that require a lot of standing, employers often recommend and/or require a certain type of shoe to be worn by employees, so back and other issues are prevented. There are many ways you can treat your sore feet at the end of a long, work day but first, it’s best to ease the pressure off your feet beforehand.
