How to Help With Pain on Your Daily Commute

By Alexis Mills

After being in a car for too long, all of us have felt like we just needed to stretch or risk our leg going numb. Having a regular, long commute can have a terrible effect on your body, one in which it tightens up the muscles and joints and creates sharp pains. Putting yourself into this pain cycle continuously, you are desensitizing your back by staying in the same position for hours during the day.

The combination of not being able to stretch out when you need to and having poor posture while driving is what really causes pain through the back, neck and even the hips. In order to make your drives more comfortable, check out the tips to minimize the stress and irritation on your body. These simple steps can make a huge impact on the pain associated with driving.

Improve Posture

Paying extra attention to your posture while driving can make a major difference. Sit upright and relax the shoulders. The default reflex to be hunched over the wheel while driving really creates back, neck, and shoulder strain.

Get A Seat Insert

Putting in a seat cushion can help you have better posture in your car and offer more support in your body where you need it. If you are struggling with back pain in the car, definitely find something to add to the driver seat. You can also get one for your desk chair if you find yourself sitting there for long hours.

See a Chiropractor

Whether you are getting back, neck, or leg pain from your daily commute, a chiropractor can help you reduce your pain through adjustments. The Joint Chiropractic can help reduce the restrictions along your spine caused by long commutes. They will help to also keep your spine strong, so you are able to hold proper posture without pain. If you are having chronic pain, chiropractic care is the best option for you.

Before you get into the car, next time make sure you are comfortable before you start driving and create a comfortable environment for yourself. If you are on an extra-long road trip, make sure to take long breaks, pack a cold or hot pack, pain relief pill, and water to stay hydrated. However, get professional chiropractic care for your commuter-inflicted pain at The Joint Chiropractic. It couldn't be easier, with affordable pricing and convenient walk-in visits; you won't want to miss out. Come and explore how much relief you can get from chiropractic care.
