    I’ve recently started training to be a chef and I’m spending a huge amount of time on my feet, each evening when I get home my ankles are extremely swollen, any suggestions on how to help prevent this or ease them better of an evening? I wear sketchers memory foam shoes at work as they are the most comfortable to be stood in for hours. Thanks.

    Get some support socks sold as anti DVT socks when flying. In the evening elevate them.

    Try and remember to flex your legs at intervals when standing

    I used to get really bad ankle pain all the time when I worked as a waitress! It does get easier, I promise. I used to use a foot spa when I got home, it was utter bliss.

    Support socks are a great idea. Have you tried Crocs <gasp> they weigh next to nothing and were a huge help to me, as well as being very anti-slip making them perfect for the kitchen!

    If I was you I would have a look at orthotic insoles, as they align your legs better so there is less strain.

    You can either pay a lot and have walking pressures measured on a pressure pad and orthotics made specifically for you, or you can go on ebay and get some for around £10!

    I like the ones with a firm plastic arch to support your foot arch and a softer top.

    You need support socks and try orthotic insoles. This combo helped a lot when I used to get foot and heel pain.

    Thanks, everyone for your replies. Will definitely look into buying some support socks and insoles ASAP.
