Business Travel Harmful to Health: Medical & Personal Fitness Experts Announce "Exercise is Solution to Many Travel Ailments"
Date:6/21/2012

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 21, 2012

Prolonged sitting, like on a plane, in a car, or at your desk shortens the psoas, a primary hip flexor, strains the glutes and hamstrings, and compresses your lower back, the lumbar and sacral spine. All of these can lead to lower back pain, hip pain or even sciatica. Lack of circulation can cause edema (swelling) of limbs and joints, and in some cases Deep Vein Thrombosis. When carrying heavy items, like computers, brief cases & luggage, one side of the body compensates by activating and shortening the muscles on the other side. This repetitive, uneven usage of muscles between the right and left sides can create imbalances in the neck, shoulder, upper back and hip muscles commonly resulting in various musculo-skeletal injuries including: tightness or impingement of the shoulder, muscle knots in the upper back & neck (trapezius), hunched back, pain and stress in the hip and knee joints.

Exercise such as Pilates, resistance training and stretching can mitigate these travel ailments. However, one of the biggest challenges facing business travelers is finding the time and place to exercise and maintain a fitness program while on the road.

While there are ways to minimize the repercussions of prolonged sitting and shouldering heavy loads, such as engaging the abs to sit taller with better posture and to support the lower back when picking up and carrying heavy objects, repetitive travel wear and tear will happen.

The good news is that stretching and strengthening exercises can reverse the physical damages of traveling.

Demanding careers can take a physical and mental toll on health. Making room for exercise can improve physical and emotional well-being by reducing stress and alleviating the physical damage of long flights or drives. Balancing work and fitness is a challenge, but it is a surmountable one.
