Repetitive Driving Injuries: Part 4 - The Roller Coaster

In the final installment of our four part series on Repetitive Driving Injuries we look at how tense, nervous drivers can suffer with pain from a number of different areas of the body.

THE ROLLER COASTER

Problems:
You are most likely to suffer with shoulder pain, neck strain, leg cramp and side ache.

Solutions:
- Relax! Tense and nervous drivers are more likely to adopt this position leading to tense shoulders so try to avoid driving situations that stress you out
- When buying a car, go for one with a fully adjustable interior package. Ensure the height of the back rest reaches the shoulders and does not obstruct 'rearward vision'
- Try and sit back more into the seat to get better back support
- Take regular breaks where you can get out of the car to stretch your legs
