Chiropractic Tips for Traveling Comfortably

Traveling is one of life’s most exciting experiences. Seeing another culture, country, or even just a neighboring town gives us memories that last a lifetime. In all that excitement, it might be easy to forget to prioritize your health. We have some simple ways to make sure you don’t lose sight of addressing your body’s needs:

  • Stretching: If you’re traveling by plane, get up and walk the aisles. You may even find a small area that you’re able to stretch out in. If you’re in the car, remember to stop every couple of hours to get out and stretch. This will also give you the opportunity to enjoy the scenery and take pictures!
  • Hydration: Drinking water regularly is one of the easiest ways to make sure your body gets the hydration it needs to work properly. Drink a minimum of 1 liter of water/day.
  • Lifting Heavy Suitcases: When you’re loading up the car or bringing your bag to the airport, be sure to lift with the strength of your legs, not your back.
  • Support Your Neck: There are countless options for supportive travel pillows. Find one that works for you to make sure your neck is in its optimal position.
  • Support Your Back: A small towel or article of clothing can be rolled up and placed behind your lower back to give it the support it needs.
  • Sleeping: Remember to sleep on your side or back, not your stomach. A good stretch after you sleep can also make a difference in the way you feel.
  • Exercises: You might find that rolling your shoulders or ankles makes your blood circulate to areas that feel cramped from traveling.
