Feeling More Aches & Pains?


Sure, the COVID-19 lockdowns are a pain, but a new survey shows that it is literally that for a quarter of Americans.

The survey of 2,000 people commissioned by the feet folk at Dr. Scholl's reveals a quarter of those polled say they're suffering more aches and pains while in quarantine.

Fifty percent of those say a lack of physical activity as compared to their pre-quarantine life is to blame; 42% say it's because they've been walking around the house barefoot all the time.

Working from home is taking a toll, too, with 36% saying they’re guilty of poor posture during their workdays. Twenty-seven percent blame an uncomfortable chair from which they're working for causing them issues. Not surprisingly, 48% say they're experiencing back pain.

Regarding lockdown chic, six in 10 say they've used their time at home to reevaluate their wardrobe choices: 42% say they've been addicted to athleisure clothing and for 55%, that's going to become a staple even when life returns to normal.

Sixty-six percent say they've turned to more comfy footwear, too, with 53% saying they've stuck to sneakers, 45% saying slippers have been their go-to, and 36% say they've just been wearing socks.

Only 12% say they've bothered to wear dress shoes during their time in quarantine, although 12% also say they've actually worn high heels.
