4 things to relieve commuter back pain:
Keep your knees higher than your hips. This position will allow the lower back muscles to relax, and will take pressure off the nerves and shock-absorbing of the lumbar spine.
Do not over extend your arms to reach the steering wheel; straining promotes nerve irritation, and abnormal sheering forces of the shock absorbing disks to occur. Rather, move your seat closer to the steering wheel and sit with your back against the seat.
Have the headrest parallel with your head, and make sure your head is fully supported.
Utilize cruise control when safe and appropriate. Dr. Smith was interviewed by NBC11 about ergonomics for today's commuter, as well as other pending health issues related to your lower lumbar region and the importance of correct posture while driving. The segment featured Dr. Smith's state-of-the- art Family Chiropractic Office and his outstanding reputation in the diagnosis and treatment of his patients.
