Driving tips for neck and back pain
Research by the British Chiropractic Association indicates that more than 5.5 million drivers could suffer from neck and back pain as a result of time spent behind the wheel.
Sitting in an uncomfortable position for prolonged periods of time can affect the body in a number of ways, such as causing tension within your muscles and in some cases restricting blood flow. Seat height is particularly important to make sure your body is well supported and comfortable.
