enjoy-your-vacation_webWhen you travel, you’re usually doing it for one main reason–for rest and relaxation, and you don’t want to have to deal with back pain on your journey. Here’s how you can help yourself (and your family) enjoy your time away from home.

Keep in mind how much time you’ll be spending in a car or airplane. Before you start your travels, keep up on your exercise and stretching routine.

During your travels, be sure to stand from time to time so your body doesn’t stay crouched in a tight space for too long. Upon arrival to your destination, avoid too much lifting, bending and twisting—after all, you should be relaxing!

If you’ve suffered from back pain in the past or want to get ahead of pain before it starts, consider scheduling an appointment with our practice before you embark on your travels and immediately upon your return.
