The Travel & Pain Connection

Summertime is heating up, and with the increase in COVID-19 vaccination rates, businesses are reopening and travel is increasing. Travel can take its toll on your body!

Handling heavy luggage and sitting for long periods of time can cause pain in your back and neck.

Suitcase Spine

Lifting heaving luggage incorrectly can cause excess stress on your spine and strain your back’s muscles, joints, and discs. This strain can cause back and neck pain referred to as suitcase spine. Sitting for prolonged periods of time during travel in the car or plane can make this pain worse. Prevention is key.

Learn more about suitcase spine and prevention tips to avoid straining your back and neck while handling luggage.

Stretching during long trips to break up extended periods of sitting is important. Stretching can help to relieve pain, while building a stronger body and a more peaceful state of mind. Learn more about tips for safely stretching your body.

When stretching does not help with your pain, schedule an appointment with one of our affiliated pain specialists to get the relief you deserve.
