From what I understand you asking if any type of acute or chronic musculoskeletal issues will arise due to wearing cushioned shoes during a trip. If this is the question: No this is perfectly fine. The cushioning will actually be beneficial if you're doing any type of extended walking. The only case where this could cause any type of issue would be ...

So there are a few things making this a difficult question to answer. Much of the in-depth research hasn't been done on healthy individuals (biomechanics of the foot), but where there's something wrong (pathomechanics of the foot). There is also a difference between what is theoretically best (found here) and what people actually do (sort of found here). ...

Mechanically, if you have good enough foot control to be able to meet compressions guidelines, then a compression is a compression. But there are a few things to consider. Most importantly, what a good compression is and how to achieve it, and whether you can achieve it with your foot. To begin, CPR guidelines are updated regularly based upon research into ...

I had a similar issue, which turned out to be pretty simple: I had missed a part of my toenail when trimming it. The part wasn't actually visible as I've drawn it here—it was in between the skin there. As the toenail grew, that part began to painfully poke into the skin, especially when wearing shoes. The pain disappeared immediately on trimming off this ...

First, some anecdotal evidence: Whenever I slept in cold environments (cold room, camping), the feet were usually the first that got cold to the point I was not able to sleep. An obvious solution was wearing socks, which usually helped. The opposite is also true. When wearing socks makes me too warm, I may not be able to sleep, so I remove them and it ...

I am not sure about physiotherapists, but one solution that is over thousand years old is Surya Namaskar, or Sun Salutations. One rep = two sets of yoga poses that give you a total body workout. If you are someone who doesn't like to exercise, or is short on time, Surya Namaskar is definately for you. Recommended daily is 54 reps = 108 sets (according to ...

I've had ingrown nails for more than 15 years and complete nail removal was never on the table. Wedge resection is a much more easy procedure, which may not even require anesthesia. It will also heal much faster and will hardly interfere with your everyday life. More on this procedure can be found at: Advice for parents about wedge resection of toenail ...

Your best and most efficient method in "curing" this situation is to seek professional attention from a podiatrist or dermatologist (webmd.com). Particularly if you are still experiencing some pain after time has passed from the original injury, along with the fungal reaction, this may be an indicator of a more serious underlying issue. Your doctor ...

It was not specified what kind of "trip" is planned. Extreme weather, height (mountains), ground conditions are quite decisive variables to consider. Then of course there is also the length of the trip. A 4 day business trip to a coastal city in temperate climate is very different to actually running in running shoes or to 6 months trecking through the ...

Dealing with the exact same issue many times, I can tell you that the only troublesome outcome of this would be your running shoes wearing out faster. For example, after 8 months instead of 12 - the exact figure heavily depends on your running / walking habits. As for your question, running with worn-out shoes can cause injuries. It's not a bad thing to use ...
