Whether you were battling villains at San Diego’s Comic-Con, or just an innocent bystander saved by superheroes, hours and hours of walking can take a toll on your feet and body. Even though painful feet are no laughing matter, if this year’s festivities gave you Comic Feet (pain from excess walking at Comic-con – yes it’s made up but oh so true), there are some ways to eliminate your pain and feel years younger.
Here are 4 simple tips to get you back on track and ready to take on the next villain:
Walk on even ground:
Walking on uneven ground can cause back and foot pain. Whenever the surface isn’t level, your body has to adapt to the change forcing some muscles to compensate for the different posture. This can lead to soreness and pain. Just keep an eye on the road that you plan to travel and pick the best route.
Wear comfortable shoes: I know the Wonder Woman attire looks amazing in high heels, but if you’re suffering in pain after how can you be the hero that everyone hopes for? If you’re walking long distances, wear comfortable shoes. You and the people you save will be glad you did.
Drink Plenty Of Water: You need to recharge for the long haul ahead. Walking long distances in the heat wearing a Chewbacca outfit will cause you to dehydrate and suck away your superpower. Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water and increase your dosage during times such as these.
Get a Massage! A foot massage is a great way for you to alleviate those aches and pains in your feet and back from walking all weekend fighting the bad guys. Massage helps relax tight muscles, improve blood flow, and reduce stress.
