Many of us are finally able to make vacation plans we have been dreaming of which could mean more walking than normal.

Foot pain can take the fun out of your trip.

For your vacation, pack a walking shoe that you’ve used before. Poor-fitting shoes do more than just cause blisters. If your shoes don’t provide the right kind of arch support, you may develop plantar fasciitis, a common type of heel pain.

A podiatrist can help you find an orthotic that will prevent injury and ease the pain of plantar fasciitis.

An increase in walking puts lots of stress on your feet and ankles. This stress causes inflammation, which can lead to pain and discomfort the next day. That’s not good, when you have a long list of activities planned!

If you want a relaxing, fun vacation, taking care of your feet can make all the difference. You deserve happy feet!  Most important —listen to your feet!

If you’re experiencing foot pain, it’s important to get treatment before your symptoms get worse. Foot problems affect the way we walk, untreated pain and injuries can lead to secondary problems.
