It’s no secret that car rides can be hard on your lower back—especially if you have to travel for an extended period of time.
The key to finding relief is to make a plan before you set off on your trip, and these 3 little-known tips can help you do exactly that:
1. Schedule regular stops for exercise
Sitting in one position for an extended period of time can tighten your back muscles, which in turn can lead to pain and even muscle spasms. So then, it’s a good idea to schedule stops every 30 to 60 minutes so you can walk around and stretch your lower back. This activity loosens your muscles and encourages blood circulation, bringing nutrients and oxygen to your lower back.
