Interstate truck drivers, machine drivers, those who drive to different work stations throughout their day and those who drive long hauls to and from work each day, you name em’, we’ve seen em’! Safe to say we have seen the many health problems that may arise while sitting for an extended period of time, such as long distance driving.
One thing we may be able to help with is the correct posture to maintain while driving. Ensuring ears are in line with the middle of your shoulders, lower back is pressed against seat, shoulders are in line with hips, seat is back and upright-close to steering wheel and that your hips are even.
A few more tips include adequate stretches and breaks in between driving to get a chance to get out of the vehicle and move around or roll up a towel and place at your lower back for extra support. Correct driving posture can make all the difference!
