Traveling by Car or Plane greater than an hour

If you will be traveling a long distance by car, it’s important to take rest breaks every hour or so to stretch your legs and walk around a bit. Also remember that you cannot drive yourself home after the procedure.

If you’re traveling by plane, you may want to request flight assistance to avoid having to walk long distances in the airport. It’s also a good idea to get out of your seat and stretch your legs every two hours during a long flight.

The airport serving the Lafayette area is Lafayette Regional Airport.
