Hints for a Comfortable Festive Season

The festive season is an excellent opportunity for relaxation, being with family, friends and is a time many people plan holidays that include travel. Having 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, mid back and lower back pain due to extended periods of sitting. When travelling, a routine of (2-3 stretches) is strongly recommended to complement a chiropractic treatment plan.

Some key benefits of targeted stretching:

  • Improved flexibility can improve your range of motion, making it easier to perform daily activities and improve form when exercising.
  • Reduces muscles tension and soreness which tends to build up due to prolonged sitting, standing or during repetitive movements.
  • Targeted stretching can promote better alignment and posture. Specific stretches can target muscles that contribute to poor posture, by lengthening tight muscles and strengthening weak ones. Sitting for hours on end causes muscles in the chest to tighten and muscles in the upper and mid back to fatigue.
  • Stretching is a form of physical activity that can be therapeutic and have a calming effect on the mind. It can promote relaxation and help reduce stress which makes it a great addition to a stress management routine.

Make an appointment with a chiropractor at Victoria Point Chiropractic before holiday travel. Ask for some specific exercises and other hints to keep you comfortable and pain free during and after travel.
