back-ache


BACK ACHE ~ One should follow the followings when driving long distances.
• Slowly travel over rough roads.
• Ensure that the vehicle has well-padded seats, which will help reduce the amount of vibration being passed up the spine.
• Support the lower back with a small cushion or lumber roll.
• Tilt the seat backwards to about 110 angels to cut vertical pressure on the spine.
• One should change  the posture often to encourage circulation and prevent muscle tiredness.
• Make sure that the distance from the seat to the foot pedals suits your legs.
• Take heavy objects out of back pockets to cut twisting forces on the lower spine.
• Take care when getting in and out of vehicles. Avoid sudden bending or twisting movements.
• Frequent stops help. As often as possible get out, stretch your back and walk around a little.
• Regularly exercise to help strengthen lower back muscles.
