TRAVELING

Traveling can be a challenge if you have knee pain. Here are some tips that could make your travel or vacation more enjoyable.

  • Plan ahead. Advance preparations are important for any trip or vacation. Be realistic about which things you can do safely and comfortably.
  • Pick a vacation tour that meets your needs. Research the amenities, transportation and lodging options offered by different tours. Do this online or with your travel agent.
  • Request assistance in advance. If you need wheelchair assistance at the airport, request it with the airline when you book your trip.
  • Carry more medication than you need, so you won’t be caught short if you extend your trip.
  • Carry a short medical history of yourself. This should include a list of your prescriptions and your doctor’s name and phone number.
  • Be practical about luggage. Use luggage with wheels and only carry on things that you’ll need during the flight.
  • Wear comfortable shoes. Traveling usually involves walking, so you should wear comfortable, well-fitting shoes.

Relax, enjoy and don’t overdo it!
