Neck Pain and Back Pain in Frequently Flyers

Long haul travel and frequent business trips can be challenging for people with neck and back pain. Prolonged sitting in an awkward position, lifting heavy objects like luggage, sleeping in an uncomfortable position or sudden increase in physical activities may create and exacerbate neck pain and back pain for most frequent flyers to or from Malaysia. Travel smart and prepare yourself for the trip so that you can enjoy the trip. There are a few simple steps you can take to prevent or minimize the pain. The clinical non-surgical teams of Chiropractic-in-Malaysia brings this article for your review in the hope of preventing injuries, pain or downtime while on vacation or business trip.


Bring a neck pillow to support your neck so that you won’t be sleeping in an awkward position for too long. This helps to prevent spasm in the neck and upper back muscles and neck stiffness. Neck muscle tightness may aggravate your headache and dizziness. For people with lower back issues, bring a back support or request a few pillows from the flight attendant to support your lower back and keep your spine straight when you sit. Try to maintain the normal curvature of your lower back and try not to slouch when you sit.

Alternate ice and heat therapy help to reduce the neck and back pain. Apply the ice pack to the spine for 10 minutes reduces the swelling and inflammation. Implementing the heat pack on the tight muscles around the shoulder or lower back for 10 minutes helps to relax the muscles. Get up and walk around the cabin for a few moments every hour reduces joint stiffness and muscle tightness. Try to travel light and bring your pain medications or muscle relaxants in your hand luggage in case you need them to ease the pain. And if the pain lingers, call our clinical teams: we offer the best neck pain and back pain treatments in Malaysia.

  3. Traveling by airplane is often not fun or easy, and it is always hard on my neck and low back. So i always make sure bring neck pillow for flying and I try to walk the aisle at least every 60 minutes. On a long-haul flight.
