Easy Tips To Reduce Back Pain While Driving

By, 2018-03-24


Do you experience back pain while driving? This is a fairly common complaint regardless of if you regularly suffer from back pain or not. It is particularly common in people who drive longer distances to work (over half an hour) or people who drive as part of their jobs such as postal workers, delivery drivers or lorry drivers. It can make driving long distances, well, a pain in the back. To help you out, we've compiled a list of tips to reduce back pain when driving.



1.Adjust the seat so you are almost sitting straight with only a slight recline – most people recommend a 100-degree angle. If you recline it too far your head will not be able to comfortably rest against the head rest which can cause tension in the neck and upper back.


2.Roll up a towel and place it behind your lower back for additional support, as car seats often do not support the natural curve of your back.


3.Get comfortable before you start the journey. Many of today’s tips are best employed at the beginning of the journey, as a small irritation can quickly grow to unbearable pain. Take a few moments to settle into a comfortable posture, check your mirrors and adjust the seat – this is particularly important if you share your car as these things may have been changed by another driver.


4.If your car has cruise control, use this when you can. While using this, place your feet on the floor so your legs form a 90-degree angle and gently push them down into the floor. This will help naturally support your spine.
