What do your summer travel plans look like? Long-distance or day tripping? Heading northwest to Washington state or south for some Florida sun? You don’t need a doctor of chiropractic to tell you that sitting in a car or plane for an extended period, carrying luggage, or sleeping in hotels (or Aunt Martha’s worn-out bed), can all wreak havoc on our bodies.
When you travel away from home, you don’t want to worry about having more pain when you return than when you left. Doctors of chiropractic are healthcare professionals focused on diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the spine and other parts of the musculoskeletal system.

Post-vacation Care from Your Doctor of Chiropractic
After returning from time away, you may feel worn out physically. That’s because you typically use different combinations of movements on vacation than during your regular daily or weekly routine.
Chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for travel-related musculoskeletal disorders. Doctors of chiropractic can assess and ensure proper biomechanical and neuro-biological function using appropriate conservative diagnostic and treatment procedures.
After a physical assessment, a treatment plan may include manual techniques or recommendations for constructive exercise, nutrition changes, and postural modifications.
