Frequent travel can take a toll on the body in the form of aches and pains from lack of movement. If you are suffering from discomfort after traveling, and you live in the Onalaska, Holmen, La Crosse, and Sparta WI area, contact Chiropractic Place Family Wellness Centers to make an appointment with our chiropractor to find a solution to battle each ache and pain you are experiencing. Here is some information about how to alleviate discomfort when traveling.
Preparing For A Trip By Vehicle
When you intend on being in a vehicle for an extended amount of time, it is best to plot out your route in advance. This allows you to find rest area spots so you can get out of your vehicle and stretch your body every few hours. If you find yourself stuck on the road and your legs or arms start to ache, outstretch them one at a time to get the blood circulating. Be sure to keep your body hydrated to help improve blood flow as well.
Preparing For A Trip By Plane
When traveling via plane, make sure to ask for a pillow to help support your neck. An additional one can be used behind the back to support it so pain is less likely to occur. Make it a priority to get up from your seat when conditions are safe to do so. Simply take a stroll up and down the aisle to stretch your legs for a bit before sitting back down.
Visit Our Chiropractor To Get Relief
If chronic pain or discomfort strikes due to traveling, it is best to make an appointment for an evaluation by our chiropractor. Spinal adjustments will help to reduce the amount of stress placed upon the joints in the body, often giving you instant relief. Temperature therapy, light exercises, and massage also work well at relieving soreness obtained from lack of movement in the body. Call Chiropractic Place Family Wellness Centers for help.
