Ann Arbor Chiropractor Can Help You Travel Without Pain

Sitting in a cramped car or plane for hours, falling asleep in a strange position, using a pillow you're not used to, and walking more than usual can all exacerbate your pain.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Does chronic pain make it hard for you to travel? Have vacations lost their appeal?

Don't let your pain prevent you from traveling! You deserve to relax and explore the world.

Here are Thatcher Chiropractic & Laser's tips for minimizing your pain while on vacation.

Planes – The best seat to have on a plane isn't the window seat! When you have pain, the aisle seat is the best choice because you can stretch your legs more. While in your seat, sitting with good posture can prevent additional pain. Every thirty minutes, get up and walk up the down the aisle to prevent stiffness and get your blood circulating.

Neck pillows help, but bring your neck or back brace if you know you'll need more support. If you have lower back pain, place a blanket or towel in between your back and the seat and mold it to support the areas you need it to.

Car, Train, or Bus – The back likes change, so change your seating position frequently. Recline your seat if possible and have frequent pit stops to stand up and walk around. Putting your car in cruise control can also help stretch out your legs. Similar to sitting on a plane, a towel behind your back can provide the support you need. You might want to bring an icepack and hot pack to treat any pain.

How much have you missed out on due to pain? Maybe you haven't noticed because you've gotten used to living this way.

You don't have to continue living in pain! You can decrease your pain, increase your range of motion, and feel better with chiropractic care from Dr. Bill Thatcher.
