Foot tendinopathy

Tendons are the hard fibers which attach muscle to bone. Most of tendon injuries happen near joints, like a knee or an ankle. A trauma to a tendon sometimes can be sudden, but normally it is caused by a continuing effort.

Tendinopathy of foot muscles: in this case there is damage in the tissue of the tendon because of its excessive use, like repeated movements during long work hours, compression or friction. The inflammation and the resulting pain can get to the point of hindering work.

So, tendinopathy is an acute inflammation of some tendon which, in time, can develop into much more serious diseases that can lead to the degeneration of the joints. This disease causes pain in the heel area, and often also on the sole of the foot.

Many people suffer from this condition, but luckily we can give you some tips for buying the perfect pair of safety shoes to relieve the symptoms:

  • using a good insole with arch support is one of the best solutions;
  • in particular, I recommend insoles that are ticker in the heel area, because that causes the foot to slightly lean forward, so reducing the stress on articulations and muscles;
  • the insoles should be soft: I recommend, if possible, soles of single-density PU;
  • safety shoes equipped with shock-absorbing gel soles are a good product; there are also sport shoes with gel soles;
  • avoid flat shoes, and shoes with thin soles, because they provide little shock absorption;
  • moreover, it is wise to own more than one pair of safety shoes and to rotate them at work, so you won’t make the inflammation worse;
  • Your safety shoes must always be fastened well, otherwise the sole can’t bend along with the foot’s movement, which prevents it from reducing the stress on the tendon.

Robert Frog
I was born in London in 1975 and still live here. I could define myself, summing up in a few words my long working career, a great expert in the field of foot and foot problems. Immediately after graduating in Motor Science I started working in an orthopaedics in which orthotics were made to measure for people with foot problems. In 1999 I was hired as Key Account Manager in a well-known chain of safety footwear and other personal protective equipment. Among my clients I had several industries, which I visited regularly to understand the needs of workers, both in terms of protection and comfort. During these years I have consolidated my knowledge on foot problems. Furthermore, I studied carefully the products I proposed: attending courses, participating in trade fairs and, often, accepting the invitation of manufacturers to visit the factories. I was thus able to observe closely the techniques and materials used to produce the best safety shoes. Since 2015 I have been collaborating with the PPE Academy for the content of Safety Shoes Today.
