Don't Let Foot Pain Ruin Your Vacation!

Schools are letting out and summer vacation is coming up.  As you're developing that checklist for your trip, be sure to add one thing:  Visit your podiatrist.

In a typical day, I'll see lots of patients who have just got home from a trip and are lamenting the fact that they didn't come in for a foot checkup before they left.  On Day 3 of their trip a callus or corn started to act up...Pain!  A tiny bit of heel pain becomes a major issue from walking in the airport.  The little nothing becomes a big something.  You get the picture.

A visit to you podiatrist can give you piece of mind, especially with the investment of a big trip.  Headed to Europe?  Those hard, uneven stone roads will make a small twinge become an unbearable pain quickly.  A cruise?  Even if you don't think you'll get off of the ship, they're HUGE and require lots of walking.

The sooner you address your foot issue, the quicker it can be resolved.  A small pain is much easier to address than one that gets out of control.  After three to four days of pain, chances are it is not going away on its own.  Save your vacation...address the pain...see your podiatrist first!
