What Causes Tired Or Aching Feet?
Research has shown that having fallen arches, or what is more accurately described as over-pronated feet, causes a person to use more energy in walking. This excess use of energy can result in a much greater degree of fatigue at the end of a day compared to people who don't over-pronate. This theory was proven by a research project reported in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association.
For those without fallen arches, it’s also common for strenuous walking or standing for long periods to have an obvious effect on your feet and may require the same level of treatment for aching feet as those that over-pronate. Other factors that play a part in tired or aching feet include ill-fitting, poorly padded shoes and tight socks or stockings. Reduced blood circulation to the ankles and feet also causes tired, aching feet.
