Commuting to work of various distances is common amongst the average person. However, recent findings have shown that long and strenuous commutes have an impact on your back.Those who travel by car are affected the most, reporting a stiff feeling after their commute. Compared to traveling by car, those who take a train or bus reported less of an uncomofrtable feeling. The problem does not only reside with commuting,it continues into the work environment when people are not changing their positions for hours; having a negative impact on their back. Eventually, not seeking the correct care, can lead to permanent joint and muscle damage. According to Doctor Katherine Cran, having proper posture, and engaging in physical activity can only be beneficial.
