Brief Answer:
It is correct.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in your feet is likely to be due to the stress they are exposed to due to prolonged standing. Ice followed by soaking in warm water with epsom salts will help in reducing the inflammation and will bring relief to the pain.
You can also give your feet a massage after 2-3 hours and apply a local analgesic gel for relief. it will help in improving the blood circulation.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
