Standing Up For Long Periods Of Time? Do It Like A Champ

Standing Up For Long Periods Of Time? Do It Like A Champ

If you’re a doctor, nurse, or anyone working in the field of medicine, you’re likely to be standing up for long periods. At times, you’ll spend hours on your feet, with little opportunity to sit down and take a rest. And since sitting for long hours isn’t a good option either, it’s easy to minimise the problems that standing can create.

Still, there is good reason for the invention of chairs. Standing up for long periods forces your lower extremities to work overtime. There is constant work for only a few muscles in your legs and blood can pool down there because the heart isn’t powerful enough to pump blood throughout the body when it is constantly vertical.

Your profession needs you to be constantly on the move, and you can’t let these physical problems affect you. Fortunately, there are ways to stay on your feet and handle it like a champ.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

Need we say more? We, at Hallmark Surgical, understand your predicament. Out inventory of clogs and specialized footwear is at your disposal. You have a choice between leather and washable clogs, as well as surgical gumboots. Or you could just wear a comfortable pair of sneakers. Prioritize function over aesthetics when it comes to your footwear. You’ll thank yourself later.

Stand Correctly

Take note of your posture. Are you chronically slouching at every opportunity? Are you stuck in a single position for hours on end? Ease the stress by modifying your position throughout the day. Doing so can give you quick, but critical, breaks to give your muscles a breather.

Walk Around Constantly

Standing in one position isn’t what your body is designed for. You are built to move around. Author and scientist, Katy Bowman, says I well: “Walking is a superfood. It’s the defining movement of a human.” Walking may also half your risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. So, do yourself a favour and get moving as much as possible.

Staying on your feet is part of your job. We know your struggles well, so let us help ease them. Contact us today.
