Tips to Alleviate Aches and Pain While Traveling

How You Can Stay Pain-Free While Traveling with Premier Chiropractic in Fayetteville, NC

Traveling can be quite taxing on the body, but even more so if you have been injured in a fall or an accident. Our chiropractor, Dr. McDowell and the rest of our team here at Premier Chiropractic in Fayetteville, NC, have some suggestions for how you can prepare for your next travel excursion. Here are some suggestions for pain free travel whether it is by bus, car or plane.

Traveling by Car

The most important thing you can do if you are traveling by car is stop every hour and a half to two hours to stretch your legs and give your muscles time to relax. If your legs tend to ache, take a short walk to stretch them out. The other thing you can do while traveling by car is to make sure you keep a cooler on hand with ice packs in it to place on the areas which ache or are causing pain.

Reducing or Eliminating Pain While Traveling by Air and Bus

There are several things you can control even before you board your flight like making sure you have a luggage scale at your disposal to monitor the weight of your carry-on. If you have bags greater than 5 to 10% of your body weight check them at the counter. Once you have boarded your flight you should make sure you massage your legs and calves while you're seated.

Proper Preparation is Half the Battle

One of the most important things you can do whether you are traveling by plane, bus, our car is to make sure you stretch and warm up your body before you begin your trip, just as you would if you were going for a walk or run. If you are planning a long trip, you should see a chiropractor for an adjustment to take care of any aches or pain before your trip.
