Schools out and the holidays are well and truly active with day trips, weekend breaks and holidays in the UK and all over the world planned to fill the long summer break.
All the planning for your holiday fun are ready but I bet the last person you have thought about was yourself. We are busy planning fun for the children and visit’s to different places instead of thinking about ourselves.
The easy way to avoid a flare up is to plan ahead. Walk the event through your head. How long will you be in the car? if it’s going to be a long haul journey make sure you have your sciatica pain relief cushion with you. This one is not just for sciatica pain but is great for low back and fibromyalgia pain. It’s easily portable so think about what you will be sitting on when you arrive at your destination.
Think about what the temperature is going to be like where you are going to. Pack your pain relief cushions which are great hot or cold for neck pain or any other body pain and can come in handy if someone else in the family has some pain. This company do a number of different shapes and sizes.
Buy yourself a 14 day pill organiser as it’s easy to forget when you last had your medication while away from your usual environment.
Finally, don’t forget to pack your walking stick as you will without doubt be walking on completely different terrine to what you are used to at home and that can soon trigger off low back pain. Folding walking sticks are cheap enough to buy nowadays and there are also some pretty and floral ones around. I learnt very quickly to make sure I had a spare in the boot of the car or in my suitcase after leaving mine behind a couple of times while on holiday.
