Learn How to Eliminate This Pain in the Neck

admin - November 21, 2011

In case you’re wondering…my post title is not referring to the “pain in the neck” idiom. I’m talking about the literal pain in the neck that can accompany a long car trip, and this HealthDay TV video provides the tips to avoiding these stiff neck and joints! It may be perfect timing, too, especially if you’re about to travel for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

So, watch this video now. You’ll not only learn how to keep your neck, arms and fingers from getting stiff but also how to avoid tension headaches.

We’ve also posted this video, which we’ve entitled, How to Avoid the Aches and Pains Associated with Car Trips So You Can Have Fun, on Life Line Screening’s YouTube channel.

Also, if you do not have video capability, I’ve provided the script for you below the video.

Happy pain free travels!

Here is the script of this video for your convenience:

Long summer car trips can take you to fun destinations, but the drive can be a real pain if you’re not sitting properly.

Rather than feeling stiff and sore after your next road trip, follow this advice so you can hop out of the care ready for fun:

•    If you’re driving, move your seat to a comfortable distance from the steering wheel. Your knees should be a bit higher than your hips, and you should have enough space behind your knees to easily slide in four fingers. If you can’t fit your fingers behind the back of your thigh and your knee, readjust the seat.
•    To cut down on tension in your arms and hands, switch your hand positions on the steering wheel from the time to time. Instead of holding the steering wheel in a steady, tight grasp, relax and tighten your grip periodically. This will also help reduce muscle fatigue in your hands and arms.
•    And finally, move your focus around different areas of the road ahead of you, rather than gazing in the same spot, to help avoid tension headaches.

I’m Dr. Cindy Haines of HealthDay TV bringing you health news that your doctors are reading.
