Keep Back Pain At Bay

Surprisingly, the leading cause of back pain is not heavy lifting, it's frequent long car trips.  People unconsciously tend to sit in a slumped position that flattens the natural curvature of the spine and puts pressure on the spinal column.  Plus, every bump in the road sends shock waves through already strained disks.

The quick save?  Tilt your rear view mirror upward just enough so you can't use it without sitting straight and tall. Adjust the seat as well so your knees and arms are relaxed and slightly bent.  This trick will minimize muscle strain that can contribute to spinal misalignment.
