Dr Barnes visits Kumho Tire

Dr. Bill Barnes recently gave an educational seminar on foot health to employees at Kumho Tire, a new tire production plant located in south Macon.

Studies show that two in three workers suffer from some sort of foot condition. Problems with your feet can affect your entire body and overall health and can lead to poor posture, balance and lifting techniques; overcompensation; fatigue and pain. Lack of attention to foot safety plays an important role in all types of workplace injury, particularly slips and falls. If you are tired or are in pain while at work, you will be more likely to act unsafely.

At the seminar, Dr. Barnes went over some of the preventative measures employees and employers can take on the job to prevent injury and promote good foot health. He also gave recommendations for footwear and socks.

If you think your workplace could benefit from a seminar on foot health, please give us a call at 478.405.2350.
