Call to Request an Appointment

George Gershwin famously wrote that “It’s summertime and the livin’ is easy…”  Indeed, many of us take time off in the summer months and hit the open road. Unfortunately, the time spent traveling to and from our destinations can be a real pain in the neck and back (literally)! Keep these tips in mind while traveling this summer:

  • Take Breaks & Move

No matter what mode of transport you are using, make sure to take regular breaks to walk and stretch. Long periods of sitting in the same position can affect your spine and lead to an achy back and neck. Motion increases circulation, lessens stress on the spine and can also help to reduce fatigue. If you are traveling by air, consider choosing an aisle seat; you can walk around the cabin whenever it is safe to do so.

  • Be Aware of Your Posture

Poor posture puts a lot of stress on your spine. While sitting, keep your back aligned against the back of the seat. Use that headrest! Remind yourself to keep your shoulders straight. Both feet should be resting firmly on the floor. If you are driving, make sure that your seat and steering wheel are properly adjusted.

  • Lift Your Luggage Carefully

Start by packing as lightly as you can. Use a suitcase with wheels to make navigating the airport less exhausting. Be sure to bend at the knees when lifting luggage to spare your back. If you must carry a bag, using a backpack that has two straps will distribute the weight more evenly.

  • Stretch

Incorporate as much stretching into your travel plans as you can. Even small intervals of stretching can increase circulation and keep your back from stiffening up.

  • See Your Chiropractor

Call your chiropractor to schedule a visit before your vacation. An adjustment can help you stay comfortable during your trip, especially if you suffer from persistent back problems.

I have gone to a Chiropractor for many years, but felt he wasn’t helping me anymore. I was suffering from daily headaches, neck and back pain and totally lacking in energy. It was time for a change. I never knew how bad I was feeling until I started feeling better! After a month of treatment I was feeling so much better I decided to go through the 8 weeks to Wellness. I am just finishing up week 6 and feel great! I wish I had found these guys a long time ago! Everyone is so nice here and treat you like family. I am enjoying getting my health on!!!

If I could give more stars I would. Dr. Prewitt and his whole staff is amazing. I went in 8 weeks ago thinking I was not going to be able to be helped and only surgery would fix me. Happily I was wrong. I went from being debilitated to back in the gym and relatively pain free in less than 8 weeks. I can’t say enough good things about his program. If you have to go to physical therapy, this is the place to go.
