Tips to Alleviate Aches and Pain While Traveling

By March 14, 2023August 31st, 2023No Comments

If a specific type of travel or extended periods of sitting consistently cause pain, it’s best to plan ahead. Compression socks and neck pillows can help, but movement is what makes a significant difference. Depending on the mode of transportation, planning to stand up and move around as much as possible can help tremendously. Even taking a short walk every hour can prevent muscles and joints from becoming too stiff, which contributes to circulatory pooling, swelling, and pain

Chiropractic Care Before and After

Chiropractic care can help prepare patients for a trip by reducing or alleviating the causes of pain. This can cover a range of issues, from neck pain and back problems to joint issues that are prone to swelling. Sitting for long periods, which is common in travel, can worsen swelling conditions and reduce circulation. By removing tension, blockages, and tight muscles beforehand, a trip can be handled with greater resilience.

After the trip, the body is likely to be out of sorts from sitting and sleeping in unfamiliar conditions. A chiropractor can help realign the spine and joints to reduce related swelling and inflammation from odd conditions. We can’t always choose the bed we sleep in when traveling, but we can choose to correct it afterward.
