Before your trip try to ensure you have as much planned as possible. Many people find that their Arthritis flares up under pressure or stress, so reducing anxiety will help to lessen physical discomfort while travelling.
For many people living with Arthritis, travelling by plane can be a daunting prospect. However, there are some great tips though to help you have a successful flight and to enjoy your holiday from the start.
Try to avoid queues and busy flights by booking your journey midweek and choosing a seat, which will allow you to stretch your legs. If you need it, speak to your airline about getting the VIP treatment with a pre-boarding escort in the airport.
When you’re planning your trip, if you are going by car, make sure you have plenty of rest stops to stretch your legs and avoid stiffness. When on a plane or boat, when safe, try to get up and walk around.
