Back & Neck Pain Associated with Traveling


fac eb f c e

With summer right around the corner, many people have started planning for their annual summer vacation trip but, along with the rest of the preparations, it’s important to keep in mind how traveling can often be associated with symptoms of back and neck pain.

Traveling through airplane, or even a bus, can be both mentally and physically exhausting and those who’ve traveled before have surely experienced some form of physical pain or discomfort. In order to compensate for the larger quantity of people using airplanes or buses, the leg room has shrunk and the majority of seats have had the cushion removed to free up more space. Typically, the cushion of a seat serves to absorb shock before it transmits into the spine from the molded plastic seat but, with its absence, the spine is forced into an uncomfortable posture for extended periods of time that most frequently cause back or neck pain. Furthermore, choosing the aisle seats can provide more room to stretch out. These will also allow you to get up more frequently to stretch out and walk around without disturbing the sleeping person sitting next to you. When taking a long flight on an airplane or drive on a bus, the C-shaped neck pillows available on the market can be a valuable purchase.

Before the long trip, its important to take precautions when lifting or yanking luggage out of a vehicle as well as being careful when constantly switching it from side to side to prevent pain and injury. Packing light while on a trip is a good way to ultimately decrease the chance of a luggage injury.

EXTRA! EXTRA! "GREAT NEWS" GRAND OPENING !!

Traveling is a frequent cause for people to experience symptoms of neck and back pain. Because the airplane or bus seats are generally not designed to offer the most comfort, sitting for extended periods of time in an uncomfortable and cramped position is usually the cause for the symptoms. Several precautionary measures can be followed when traveling though, to ensure a lower chance of injury. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
