Here at Chelmsford Chiropractor we are all very much looking forward to Christmas. For many, including some of us at the clinic, Christmas entails lots of long car journeys to visit family and friends.
If you know that you have a long journey ahead of you this Christmas, it is worth remembering that sitting for extensive periods of time can be bad for your back.
Below are a few tips that will help you keep your back safe in your car this Christmas:
- When planning your journey try to give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination. This will not only allow time for heavy traffic but will give you time for regular breaks too
- Make sure that you adjust the headrests, car seat and steering wheel before you set off. This will allow you sit in a comfortable and relaxed position
- Try to make the journey more fun, especially if you have children with you. Maybe a pub lunch or a walk in the country
- When you arrive at your destination, make sure you stretch your legs and arms to ease stiff muscles and joints
If you are suffering from back pain and you feel you need some help please do not hesitate to pay us a visit or get in touch with Chelmsford Chiropractor Clinic at https://chelmsfordchiropractor.co.uk
