Taking Care of Feet While Traveling

Traveling often leads to tired and achy feet due to prolonged periods of walking, standing, or sitting. These activities can cause swelling, discomfort, and fatigue in the feet, especially when confined to tight spaces like airplane cabins or car seats. The lack of movement restricts blood flow, causing fluid to pool in the lower extremities. This can result in a sensation of heaviness, throbbing, or even pain. To soothe tired and achy feet while traveling, take regular breaks to stretch and walk around, promoting better circulation. Elevate your feet when possible to reduce swelling. Wearing comfortable, supportive shoes and compression socks can also alleviate discomfort. Gentle foot massages can help reduce inflammation and provide relief. Additionally, staying hydrated and avoiding excessive salt intake can also prevent fluid retention. If foot pain persists or becomes severe, it is suggested that you visit a podiatrist for a thorough evaluation and personalized advice. 

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with Pasquale Cancelliere, DPM from Candria Foot and Ankle Specialists. Our doctor will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.


Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
  • Flat Feet
  • Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.


Treatment depends upon the cause of the foot pain. Whether it is resting, staying off the foot, or having surgery; podiatrists have a number of treatment options available for foot pain.
