Commuter's Pain: Dealing With the Discomfort

By Genevieve Cunningham

Living in the Dallas area can be a lot of fun. The metroplex is full of things to do, places to see, and friendly people to meet. But as you’re probably aware, Dallas living also comes with a ton of traffic and lengthy commutes. While many people simply accept this as a part of life, others suffer physically from all of that time spent going to and from work. If you want to protect yourself from the discomfort of commuting and still enjoy life in the big D, take a look at these tips for keeping the body healthy.

Why Commuting Causes Pain

Commuting tends to cause pain because of two reasons: the amount of time spent in the car and the posture we hold while we’re on the move. When we commute, it’s often for hours per day. This means sitting in the same position, with very little movement, day in and day out. No wonder it causes pain! Along with the time spent behind the wheel, most of us hold poor posture while we drive or ride. We slump forward, slouch the shoulders, and then barely move from this position. After a while, this causes minor injury in the back, which leads to ongoing pain for the commuter.

How to Deal With Discomfort Quickly

In the short-term, it can help to slightly alter your commuting plans. If possible, leave just a little earlier and add a stop where you can stretch out the body in the middle of the commute. If this isn’t possible, try buying a low back support, a neck support, or other devices aimed at taking the stress off the spine.

How to Deal With Pain Long-Term

If you’re looking for a long-term solution to the pain associated with commuting, try adding chiropractic care to your life on a regular basis. Chiropractors can help remove restrictions from the vertebrae of the spine. These restrictions are more likely to occur in commuters, and the removal of these spots can lead to less pain and a healthier back. With regular visits, you may find that the pain is reduced now, and then stays away in the future as well.

If you’re ready to stop the pain associated with commuting and chiropractic care sounds like an avenue worth exploring, visit with chiropractors at The Joint. Besides friendly chiropractors, you’ll also get to use their walk-in visits, affordable pricing, and extended hours to make getting care easier than ever. Don’t live with constant discomfort.
