For Travel Aches and Pains
Many of my clients experience a pain flare after travel. Pain is so complex and multifaceted, so there is never any one reason that it rears it’s ugly head. This practice is a quick and accessible practice that you can do just about anywhere in a chair. I’ve chosen the stretches we all crave when we’ve been sitting in a car or airplane as well as regulation practices to help you calm your nervous systems to get some perspective or even relief. Often, when pain is flaring in a travel situation, it’s because we have some anxiety and we aren’t moving very much. This practice addresses both issues.
Props needed: a chair 🙂
Start Your Pain Care Journey
If you are a longtime listener to this podcast, you are well familiar with pain care yoga. Everything I do is intended to support those who live with persisting pain. It is estimated that 1 in 10 people have chronic pain worldwide. In the US though, that number is closer to 20-30%. Pain is a universal human experience that is vital to our survival. But enduring pain that steals your peace and your future is not normal. Ensuring that evidence informed, wholistic pain care is available to anyone who needs it is my mission. The podcast is a great resource for evidence informed pain care. But if you would like to enhance your understanding as a yoga practicioner, teacher or as someone who lives with chronic pain, or loves someone who does, I have a free resource for you. Introduction to Pain Care Yoga is a short video course that will formalize your understanding of Yoga for Pain Care and provide simple, accessable strategies for relief.
