From long plane rides to far road trips, traveling can cause a great deal of aches and pains. Neck and lower back pain can cause stress on our bodies while we travel. It is important to have a few tips and tricks handy in the event that you face pain when on the road.

Take Breaks from Sitting while Traveling

Whether it is getting up to walk around or stopping for gas, it is important to give your blood the chance to circulate throughout your body. Without it, your legs might go numb, swell, and ache from the lack of circulation.

If you are on an airplane, you can’t just stop the flight. Take a walk to the bathroom or even just stand at your seat and move your legs to get the blood pumping.

Stretch

Stretching is a great way to alleviate pain. From touching your toes to simply tilting your neck in the car, stretching can help get rid of neck or lower back pain.

Ergonomics

Have to travel in an uncomfortable position? Try things like lifting your feet off the ground while on a plane or using a neck pillow. Ergonomics focus on repositioning the body to promote proper posture, preventing aches and pains.
