If you are preparing for a trip, managing your travel-related ache and pains may not be the first thing on your mind. A visit to Campion Chiropractic in College Station, Texas to meet with our experienced chiropractic care team will help prepare you for a positive travel experience. Here are some tips to help alleviate travel-related aches and pains.
Engage in moderate exercise.
One of the best things you can do while traveling is to engage in moderate exercise. You can engage in simple exercises based on the space you are in. For example, you can rotate your ankles while seated, do lunges around your hotel room, and do simple stretches to keep blood flowing to your muscles. A resistance band can easily fit into your bag to help you exercise while you are away from home.
Rest and use heat to treat persistent aches.
Some soft tissue pain is persistent; it can be distracting and even keep you from getting comfortable enough to sleep. In these cases, try to utilize heat to treat your soft tissue pain. You can source a hot pack at a local store. Make sure to put a layer between your skin and the hot pack in order to prevent injuring your skin.
Schedule a visit with a chiropractor.
You may be able to minimize and even avoid travel-related aches and pains with the proper care. Schedule a visit for chiropractic care prior to your trip. Our experienced chiropractors will help to make sure that your joints are in the proper alignment and that you are engaging in the proper body mechanics. This foundation of care will minimize your incidence of soft tissue injury while traveling.
