Don't Let Travel Be Pain in"Prolonged sitting can wreak havoc on your body," says Dr. Bautch,
president of the American Chiropractic Association's Council on Occupation Health.
"Even if you travel in the most comfortable car or opt to fly first class,
certain pressures and forces from awkward positions can result in restricted
blood flow. One of the biggest insults to your system from prolonged sitting
is the build up of pressure in the blood vessels in your lower legs."DIZZINESS-Whoa, Hang OnThere are two primary types of dizziness, sometimes known as Vertigo. The
are (1) inner ear and (2) circulatory. Both types may be produced by drugs,
accidents or by merely whirling about rapidly like many of us did as children.Caution: Low Shoulder"Caution: Low Shoulder" is an obvious danger sign. On the highway,
it means to watch where you're going. If you get too close to the side of the
road, you'll slide off into the ditch where you might get stuck or even roll
your car. When you have a low shoulder, you may be in danger of sliding off
into ill health. A low shoulder can often indicate a musculo-skeletal (muscles
and the bones they're attached to) imbalance that can create functional problems,
as well as, pain.Back Packs and Back PainThe amount of weight carried by children in their backpacks deserves serious
consideration. Loading the spine risks low back pain not only in adults but
in children; the load that children commonly carry is their school backpack.
To quantify how much weight children likely carry in their backpacks, researchers
from Milan, Italy ascertained the weight of backpacks used by sixth graders
at several schools.
