TRAVELING AND VACATION TIPS AUTOMOBILE, PLANE, TRAIN or BUS:

1. Sit up straight. In your car use a lumbar support. On a plane, train or bus, if pillows are not available, rollup a sweater or jacket and place it behind your low back area. Roll another item to place behind your neck.
2. Do not sit for long periods of time. In a car stop every two hours if possible, if only for a few minutes. Get out, stretch your back, and walk around before starting your journey again.
3. In a plane be sure to sit with your seatbelt buckled at all times, even if the seatbelt sign is turned off. This can prevent serious injuries should the plane encounter sudden unexpected turbulence. However, after an hour or even less, get up and walk to the restroom or just up and down the aisle if clear, at least once or twice before sitting and buckling up.
4. In a bus you won’t be buckling up but do get up to stretch your body and legs whenever possible, especially on long trips. Use the back and neck supports as suggested for automobile trips.
5. In preparing for any trip you will be packing, carrying and needing to transport one or more bags to your car, health plane, bus or train. Following are tips to make your life easier and safer to ensure a happy vacation and trip.

  1. Place your bag or suitcase on a bed, couch or ottoman when you begin to pack.
  2. Not lifting properly can ruin your vacation or trip at the onset by causing an injury to your back or shoulder. Do not lean over at the waist; instead bend at the knees and lift with your legs, keeping your back straight.
  3. If you have to put your bag or bags into the trunk of a car, lift the bag with both hands by bending the knees, keeping your back straight and lifting with the legs. Place the bag on the edge of the trunk. Do not place it directly into the trunk; then holding the bag with one hand, place the other hand on the edge of the trunk while jockeying the bag into the trunk with the other hand. This will prevent your having to lean into the trunk and straining your back.
  4. If traveling by plane, train or bus you will have to transport your bags to the terminal. You will probably have to walk for some distances. Use a wheeled luggage cart that usually may be found at terminals if your bags do not have the attached wheels and handle to pull or push it. If you can’t find a cart, look for a Porter.
  5. When carrying a shoulder bag, do not carry it on one shoulder for any length of time. Be sure to switch sides often. Blk Kat Carts
  6. Where feasible, instead of using a shoulder bag, use a backpack. This will evenly distribute the weight so that there will be no undue stress placed on your shoulders or lower back.
  7. When traveling with an infant use a chest or back carrier instead of carrying the infant in your arms.
