What helps your back when you drive?
So you want to head out on a family road trip. You love the open road, but no matter how fancy your orthopedic seats are in your car, you still find yourself with a stiff or sore back upon your arrival.
Ugh. That puts a damper on things!
What can you do?
I have blogged about using tennis balls in a sock while driving before, but I had the opportunity to test out two other things to help with the back and sitting in general on a recent road trip.
Would either of the two options beat out the tennis balls?
Some clients complain that the tennis balls are too firm, so I wanted to investigate options that I could really recommend.
I found this super interesting pillow called “Bed of Nails” with circular acupressure points on plastic discs spread out evenly across an arched surface.
This was alternate number two.
Alternate three was another chunk of rectangular foam pillow that you lashed to the seat itself called a “Yoga Wrap”. The foam has an indentation to accommodate the part of the spine that pokes out in the back, to make it that much more comfortable.
I used my copilot and soccer friend Tricia as an additional tester. We agreed to test each item for an hour straight, and then try another item. It was very scientific. 😉
Which one did we like the best? Watch below to find out!
