Many of us spend a significant amount in our cars commuting. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, it is estimated that the average time to work in the United States is slightly in excess of 25 minutes. Being stuck in traffic can cause significant stress and strain on the neck and cause pain and stiffness.
While we may not be able to avoid driving our cars, there are a few simple ways to minimize neck discomfort. Maintaining good posture, good head support and proper mirror positions are easy fixes that will go a long way to make your drive more comfortable. Additionally, a cervical stabilization program designed to strengthen the muscles of your neck and shoulder can help too.
