Traveling is something that lots of us are planning on doing to a certain extent this holiday season. Keeping this in mind, aches and pains seem to get worse when you are cramped up in a small space for a prolonged period of time. The doctors at Duben Holistic Chiropractic Center in the Thousand Oaks area can help you to get the most out of your holiday travel and reduce your aches and pains as well.
How to Reduce Pain while Traveling
We all love to travel to see loved ones, to see places we have never seen before, and to get a new lease on life. However, travel often requires that we stay in one position, most often sitting, for long periods of time. This can do a few negative things to our bodies. For starters, it can render the spine out of alignment, which can cause pain, pinch nerves, and prolonged aches as well. If you are dealing with aches and pains and you have travel in your future, visiting your chiropractor prior to leaving is a great idea. They can align your spine and make sure you’re in good shape before your trip.
Another great tip is to get up and move as much as possible during your trip. This is going to help make sure that your muscles have a chance to relax, that you have a chance to get up and shake out the cobwebs so to speak and that you can get your spine back in line. You can also use pillows that help to support the lumbar spine, neck, and other areas. There are tons of great orthopedic pillows on the market today that really help to keep you comfortable while you are on your trip.
