GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Many of us are looking forward to hopping in the car and hitting the road this summer for a weekend getaway or long vacation...but we are not looking forward to sitting for hours, something that might cause us neck and back pain. Our Ask The Expert Total Health Chiropractic has some tools and tips to help make our car rides, plane ride and long days at our desks pain free. Here are five easy steps to take:
1. Roll a towel or pillow to place behind your back, or use a lumbar chair support
2. Don't sit on your wallet, as it throws your spine out of alignment
3. Sit with a neutral pelvis. Using a seat wedge will help.
4. Use the car's seat heater for a few minutes at a time to keep muscle spasms to a minimum
5. Do exercises and stretches at rest stops
If your pain is persists, could be a sign of a more serious spinal disorder. Contact Total Health Chiropractic for a consultation to check out what's going on and set up a treatment plan to alleviate that pain once and for all.
