Regardless of whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, whether you fly, drive or take a train, there's one mode of transportation that you'll certainly use on your trip: your FEET! During the course of a regular day, the average person walks 8,000 to 10,000 steps, but that number can increase dramatically when you're traveling. From inappropriate footwear to long stretches of inactivity in cramped cars or airplane seats, traveling can be hard on your feet and legs.
By following basic foot care practices, you can ensure that foot pain won’t slow down your enjoyment of the journey. See the doctors of Affiliated Podiatrists for a tune up prior to your travels. A visit might entail basic foot care, a recommendation of appropriate socks, shoes or orthotics to increase your comfort.
