Summer Travel Can Provoke Back Pain: 3 Tips to Help

By Virginia Laird

With summertime travel in your passenger seat it is time to begin detailing exactly how to prevent back pain as you set out on your vacation. Chiropractors admit that many who suffer with back pain while traveling admit to ending their vacation early. Rather than having such pain end your fun, start making plans to keep it at bay. A few tips these chiropractors suggest you try include:

  • Invest in luggage that rolls
  • Stretch throughout your travel day
  • Wear comfy shoes

Invest in Luggage That Rolls

When traveling, packing can prove to be a challenge. There is a fine line between packing what you need for multiple days and overpacking. Still, there is great concern with the tugging and lugging on luggage and how such heavy loads can impact your back. Chiropractors admit that one sure way to protect the spine is to rely on luggage that rolls. Following this advice can help keep the load off of your back which can cause a great deal of pain. Now is the time to consider investing in such luggage if you haven't already.

Stretch Throughout Your Travel Day

Traveling requires a good amount of sitting. This can cause tension to build in the spine, which can lead to pain. For this reason, chiropractors suggest that you should stretch throughout your journey. Stretches should target the back and neck. Chiropractors also suggest that you should spend some amount of time stretching your legs. Wherever you stop along your way, save a few minutes to walk. This also helps to release tension in the body. Make sure when you head out on your vacation trip that you allow time to stretch throughout your travel day.  

Wear Comfy Shoes

Chiropractors are adamant that the shoes you wear play a huge role in the amount of back pain you may experience. Research indicates that wearing shoes which are uncomfortable can impede the natural stride which can cause you to put more stress on your spine. Instead, when you travel, chiropractors insist that wearing comfy tennis shoes are the best option to help you avoid back pain.

If you are one who suffers with severe back pain, your chiropractor can help you manage and prevent such pain. Consider dropping by The Joint Chiropractic in your community for help restoring function and releasing restriction of the spine. With more than 450 locations nationwide you are sure to find one nearby. And with no appointment necessary, getting seen is as easy as dropping by on your way out of town for your vacation.
