Feels like a lot of our patients are taking off for holidays in the next few weeks!
We all love travelling here at Broadway At Burrard too! But have you ever noticed how your back stiffens up on a lengthy plane ride?
After taking a few trips of their own recently, our practitioners certainly did!
While you sit for several hours, there is less blood circulating to your back muscles and legs. With less circulation, there is less oxygen getting to these areas, and muscles that receive less oxygen tend to tighten up and eventually cramp.
A rule of thumb to prevent that stiff back while flying is to take a walk down the aisle every 2 hours. This will get the blood circulating to all of these areas and you will feel much more comfortable.
Have a good flight!
Book in today with Dr. Jerry Wright or Dr. Hunsberger today to get back into post trip shape when you return! www.broadwayatburrardchiro.com/contact!
