Many people have transient low back pain. Sometimes they may even have a history of pain that comes and goes, and yet they have no understanding of why and what they can do about it. Here are some internal reviews that you can walk through to see if maybe it is something you are doing to yourself.
- Height and back support in your car.
- Check to see where your knees are in relation to your hips. It is common for someone to have their car seat too low and they will be spending hours with their knees higher then their hips. This takes the natural curve of the low back and straightens it beyond the natural curve of the spine.
- Does your car seat have enough, and not to much, low back support? Make sure that you can feel your car seat on your low back and yet not pushing on your low back. Also make sure that your head rest is not pushing your head forward.
- When you stand, what part of your foot has the most weight on it? Ideally, no part.
