Traveling can be rough on the body. Whether you are traveling alone on businessor on your way to a sunny resort with your family, long hours in a caror an airplane can leave you stressed, tired, stiff and sore.
"Prolonged sitting can wreak havoc on your body," says Dr. Scott Bautch, immediate past president of the American Chiropractic Association's (ACA) Council on Occupational Health. "Even if you travel in the most comfortable carrier opt to fly first class, certain pressures and forces from awkward positions can result in restricted blood flow. One of the biggest insults to your system from prolonged sitting is the buildup of pressure in the blood vessels in your lower legs. Contracting and relaxing the muscles helps the blood flow properly."
Dr. Bautch and the ACA suggest the following tips and advice to fight the pains and strains of travel before they occur.
Treat travel as an athletic event. Warm up before settling into a car or plane, and cool down once you reach your destination. Take a brisk walk to stretch your hamstring and calf muscles.

In September, I was rear-ended in a car accident. I have always been nervous about going to a Chiropractor, but this was my 3rd whiplash and I knew that Physical Therapy only did so much. I searched the web for Chiropractors in my area and found the Ahwatukee Life Center. What impressed me about their treatment of the whole body, not just my neck. With the careful explanation of my X-rays, I was able to see how my neck trauma was affecting various parts of my body. They also used the Cold Laser treatment to help with the dizziness that I suffered from after the accident. Thank you Dr Morley and staff, for calming my fears about Chiropractors. I feel SO much better!
