Health tip: Prevent back pain in the car

(HealthDay News) — Traveling long distances in the car can take a toll on your back.

The American Chiropractic Association suggests how to keep back pain at bay during a car trip:

  • Adjust your seat so you’re sitting comfortably close to the wheel, with your knees just higher than your hips.
  • Use a back support.
  • Take regular breaks to rest.
  • Stretch your toes, leg muscles and shoulders as you drive.
  • Keep hands on the steering wheel at the 3:00 and 7:00 positions, alternating occasionally with the 10:00 and 2:00 positions.
  • Keep a relaxed grip on the wheel, occasionally tightening, then loosening, your hold.
