The Daily Commute Doesn't Have to be a Pain: Tips from Topical BioMedics for Being More Comfortable on the Road

Share Article

Whether by car, train, bus, or plane, people who commute to work on a regular basis are more likely to have neck, back, and shoulder pain, feel more stressed, and get fatigued. Toprical BioMedics, Inc., the makers of safe, natural Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream, offers helpful tips for making travel more comfortable.

We are a nation of commuters, and rush hour traffic is stressful

Give yourself at least five minutes of additional travel time so if there is a delay enroute you won't feel the pressure of running late.

People are commuting farther than ever and all those hours spent carpooling or being cooped up in a bus, train or subway can take a huge toll on the body. Studies have shown that commuters are more likely to have recurrent neck and back pain and fatigue and feel more stressed.

Topical BioMedics, Inc., the makers of safe, natural Topricin Pain Relief and Healing Cream, offers the following tips for turning torturous travel into a more comfortable, ache-free ride.

  • If your seat is not comfortable for going the distance, see if using a seat cushion or lumbar support helps. You can also support your lumbar region by rolling up a towel to the thickness of your forearm and tucking it into the space where the small of your back meets the seat.

-The tension of driving in rush hour traffic sends your shoulders toward your ears. To combat this, roll your shoulders, loosen your grip on the wheel and spread out your fingers. Since most people hold tension in their neck and back, keep yours relaxed by stretching your neck from side to side when you’re safely stopped. Take advantage of sitting at a red light by doing shoulder shrugs and rolls, changing your sitting position, and stretching a bit.

-Make it a habit to use your headrest rather than craning your head forward to focus on the road.

-If you ride the subway, bus or train, cut down on the stress by practicing “sensory meditation.” Simply close your eyes and feel the movement or vibration and relax to the rocking motion of the vehicle while taking slow, deep breaths.

-Don’t wait until you are hurting – be preventative and apply Topricin to the area impacted most by pain. Topricin is greaseless and odorless so you can feel confident using it before work. Then reapply it to any areas that are particularly susceptible to muscle aches and cramping to help keep pain at bay. Topricin is available in a convenient travel-friendly 2-ounce tube and is just the right size to tuck in a purse, briefcase, tote bag, backpack or travel bag.

-Don’t forget that your feet take a beating too and can swell up, along with your legs--especially when you’re flying. Topricin is available in a Topricin Foot Therapy Cream specially formulated to target these areas.

  • Give yourself at least five minutes of additional time before leaving the house to relieve some of the stress associated with commuting so if there is a delay you won’t feel the pressure or concern of being late.
  • Finally, before you begin your commute, take a few minutes to stretch and eliminate any stiffness in your arms, legs and torso. If you’ve had a stressful ride, stretch again and take a few deep breathes to get “centered” before starting your work day. You’ll be glad you made the attitude adjustment—and so will your coworkers!
