Stretching Exercises During Your Travels to Avoid Pain
Long hours of travel in plane, car, bus, or train can be challenging for people with back and neck pain. Prolonged waiting period before boarding the vehicle, lengthy sitting time in the car, and lifting heavy luggage may cause or aggravate neck or back pain. Sitting still in a seat with minimal room for the legs and elbow may cause stiffness and pain in the neck and back. There are a few stretching exercises that you can do to relax the tight muscles.
