Care for your feet: Taking care of your feet is very important when you spend long periods of time on them.

I stand on a concrete floor 2 days a week for 15 hours a day. My feet are stinging by the time I get home.  What can I do to help along w/back ache?

Get a floor pad to stand on that is a little soft and so relieves the pain in your back by reducing strain but not too soft that your stance is unstable. Ask your doctor or a physical (or occupational) therapist about where to get it. ...Read more

Yes: That is a significant height for a 3 y/o. I would have her seen at the Dr.'s office and monitored for a little while to make sure pt is acting well. Keep looking for signs of irritability, fussiness, vomiting, change in personality. Any changes need to go to ER right away. ...Read more
