The festive season is an excellent opportunity for relaxation with family and friends and is a time when many people plan holidays that include travel. Time off work can help lower stress levels and assist recovery after a busy year; however, even holidays can have some obstacles.

Travelling is a common reason for reports of neck pain, mid-back and lower back pain due to extended periods of sitting in cars designed for safety rather than ergonomics. For example, sitting for hours on end causes muscles in the chest to tighten and muscles in the upper and mid back to fatigue and cause pain.

Stretching is a strongly recommended complement to a chiropractic treatment plan and a short routine of 2-3 stretches chosen specifically for your individual postural issues can work wonders for keeping pain at bay.

Some key benefits of a targeted stretching routine include:

  • promoting better alignment and posture. Specifically chosen stretches target muscles that contribute to poor posture by lengthening tight muscles and strengthening weak ones.
  • improved flexibility increases your range of motion, making it easier to perform daily activities and improve form when exercising.
  • reducing muscle tension and soreness that builds up due to prolonged sitting, standing or repetitive movements.
  • promoting relaxation and helping reduce stress. Stretching is a therapeutic form of physical activity that has a calming effect on the mind, making it a great addition to a stress management routine.

Make an appointment with one of our Victoria Point Chiropractors – Bethany, Nathan or Lloyd – before your holiday travel. Ask for specific exercises and other hints to keep you comfortable and pain-free during and after travel.
