Traveling is something that is not only a choice, but is also a necessity for some. Although with travelling can come exciting adventures, it can also cause unwanted pain if once has to do it frequently. Whether traveling by car, plane, or bus, sitting for long periods can slowly create back and neck pain. Travelling is a nessesity of life, so to prevent pain from occurring, there are some simple things you can do.
A recent American study predicted that nearly all the people suffer a back pain at some point in their lives. The causes of back pain may vary, but for travelers, it is normally the heavy bags they try to lift or the stiff and rigid seats (with little or no back support) of the car on a long route. As care is always better than then the cure, here are some tips to avoid back pain and neck pain while travelling.
The very first thing a traveler should do is take along a lower back support and a neck support. Using these can help ward off pain that comes with prolonged sitting. Secondly, while lifting heavy bags, do not bend or twist your back so much, and adjust your posture so that the maximum load is on the legs. Moreover, It is advisable to pack light while traveling and distribute your things into two or three smaller bags instead of stuffing them into a single one.
If you have been traveling and find yourself suffering with back pain or neck pain, it is advisable to consult a chiropractor before it gets too severe. So call our office today, and we can help eliminate those travel-related pains.
