The Impact of Foot Injuries on Arizona Workers
We often take our ability to complete our daily work tasks for granted. Having full use of our feet seems like a given until something happens that affects our ability to move or function normally.
Did you know that your feet contain 25% of the bones in your body? In order to move freely, all these bones must connect, coordinate, and function in a particular way. When something affects the bones, ligaments, muscles, or tendons in your foot, you can lose your ability to coordinate movement or walk without pain.
Even seemingly simple injuries like strains and sprains can require a long recovery time. This will put you out of work if you have a job that requires something other than sitting at a desk. Your foot injury, depending on its nature or severity, may also require surgery, rehabilitation, and ongoing medical treatment. This represents a significant investment of both time and money, which can be daunting if you’re already missing time from work.
Symptoms of a Foot Injury
Common symptoms of a foot injury can include:
- Increased pain when shifting weight
- Warmth in the foot
- Restricted mobility
