Hey guys,

Wondering if anyone has specific products they use for their feet/ankles while driving to prevent/deal with pain in that area. I went through intermittent pain during PSD. I didnt drive for a few days and was in pain again just from getting on the pad!

PSD:

Prime Student Driver

Prime Inc has a CDL training program and the first phase is referred to as PSD. You'll get your permit and then 10,000 miles of on the road instruction.

The following is from Prime's website:

Prime’s PSD begins with you obtaining your CDL permit. Then you’ll go on the road with a certified CDL instructor for no less than 75 hours of one-on-one behind the wheel training. After training, you’ll return to Prime’s corporate headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, for final CDL state testing and your CDL license.

Obtain CDL Permit / 4 Days

  • Enter program, study and test for Missouri CDL permit.
  • Start driving/training at Prime Training Center in Springfield, Missouri.
  • Work toward 40,000 training dispatched miles (minimum) with food allowance while without CDL (Food allowance is paid back with future earnings).

On-the-Road Instruction / 10,000 Miles

  • Train with experienced certified CDL instructor for 3-4 weeks in a real world environment.
  • Get 75 hours of behind-the-wheel time with one-on-one student/instructor ratio.
  • Earn 10,000 miles toward total 40,000 miles needed.

Is your seat too high? Quite a few people have mentioned pain in legs and ankles went away after lowering the seat.

I've got a truckload of popcorn on the way for anybody interested. Every topic Smart C ignores everything hes told anyways......

Shocking he still is driving after the SS Card topic that went on forever.

Pointless to type any advice.

Before bed and when you wake up - or any time you get a chance - prop your foot up on the opposite knee, grab your foot with your hand, and rotate your foot in circles about 20 times in each direction. All you need is a little bit of tension, dont need to crank it hard. Helps to stretch the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the ankle.

That ankle pain may be caused by Smart C. being such a PAIN IN THE ASS on this forum. Try Blu Emu. Pat Boone says it works great. Who doesn't trust Pat Boone!

I appreciate you adding to the thread before the popcorn remark. However I dont ignore excellent advice.

Thanks! I'll definitely do this. Have you ever used any ACE products?

ACE are cheap drug store type of products that may give minimal relief. But if you are truly concerned, look into a medical supply store. I twisted my knee last year and the $30 Walmart brace did nothing. The $80 medical supply store brace fit much better and healed so much faster due to better support. They measured my knee for the correct size. Very heloful people.
