How to End Painful Commutes

By Genevieve Cunningham

When you live in the Houston area, commuting is necessary. Even a simple 20 or 30 miles can take an hour or more to reach the intended destination. While most people just expect this to be a part of their life, it’s still a bother, especially when it comes to pain and general health. Commuting, though necessary, may be causing negative side effects to your health and wellness. Take a look at these tips for making the commute more health friendly and pain-free.

Make Your Vehicle Supportive

Whichever vehicle is used to commute, it should contain multiple supportive devices. Make sure it has a low back support to rest behind your back. Make sure it has a headrest that can help the neck relax. Make sure it has pillows that can be moved to support whatever part of the body needs it. Having these devices available can make the commute much more comfortable, and potentially end the back pain.

Stretch Before and After

It might sound silly, but it might really work! Before you get in the care for a long commute, get in a good stretch. Make sure this includes stretching the neck and back, two areas that often suffer from the commute. And after you reach your destination, get in another quick stretch. Though this might not sound like much, it might be enough to reduce stiffness in the joints and reduce overall pain.

Add Chiropractic Care to Your Life

Those who commute should definitely take the time to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors remove restrictions from the vertebrae of the spine, and this can reduce pain, improve mobility, and encourage a healthier body overall. And the best part is that this doesn’t have to be done every day. Meet with a chiropractor to discuss your pain and a plan of action. Then stick with the plan to reduce current pains, and to potentially prevent the pain from returning in the future.
