Take a break - most people want to get to where they are going as quickly as possible. This means sacrificing movement breaks for speed. Movement is key – your joints have little to no blood supply. They need movement for nourishment and to flush out pain causing waste products. For every hour you travel, you need to stop and move around for about 10 minutes. Take turns - dividing up the driving time will give you the chance to relax, stretch out your legs and move around as much as possible to prevent spasms or cramps. Change positions – when driving, people keep their right leg forward to reach the accelerator, sitting in a twisted position for an extended period. This twisting can be reduced by bringing the seat forward an inch to sit more squarely. Lumbar support - sitting for long periods stiffens muscles, causes spasms and shortens hip flexors. Sitting too close to the wheel can cause poor posture. Give your lower back the support it needs with a cushion. Cool down - applying a cold pack is one of the most effective pain relief treatments. It’s also an extremely easy way to prevent pain from increasing. While driving, apply the cooled pack to the given spot for 15 minutes or until the pain subsides. Stretch it out - sitting in your car seat, grab under the right side of your seat with your right hand. With your left arm reach over your head and grip just above your right ear, gently pull your head to the left until you feel a stretch in your neck. Hold for 15 seconds, then switch sides. This is to loosen up your joints and release joint pressure.
