Employment report suggests sales of bunion splints may rise

ADP reports that the number of service sector jobs increased last month. 

Employment report suggests sales of bunion splints may rise Waitresses, retail workers, bartenders and hairstylists are all at risk of developing bunions because of the extended periods of time they spend on their feet every day. 

Perhaps the folks at Alpha Orthotics should begin upping their production of bunion splints and orthotics, because the recent ADP Employment Report shows that the number of service sector jobs rose by 114,000 in October, making it the 20th consecutive month of employment gain for people in this industry.

Individuals whose previous positions involved sitting on a cushy chair all day staring at a computer may not be aware of the risks that come along with their new job. Going eight straight hours on the feet can cause the metatarsophalangeal joint to become deformed, eventually developing into a bony protrusion on the inner edge of the foot.

Luckily, bunion splints and orthotics are an inexpensive way for people to keep bunions and hammer toe at bay, which may save service workers from having to undergo bunion surgery down the road.
