Hiking can put stress on your feet, ankles and knees. Never push yourself beyond your abilities and always listen to what your body is telling you. Understanding how to treat and prevent pain will help you keep climbing.
Nature Nurtures
If you get injured while hiking, nature can be a pretty good source of first aid. Use cold brooks and streams to soothe leg injuries and use branches as walking sticks. Take measures like these until you've reached a place that can supply you with adequate medical attention.
Sock It to 'Em
The right sock can make all the difference. Avoid the 100% cotton varieties since cotton absorbs sweat and will leave your feet moist. Wet feet have less stability inside your boots, which can lead to blisters and injury.
