- Don’t sit with items in your pockets.
Sitting on your wallet, keys or other items can cause back pain due to sitting on an uneven surface. Find a safe place for your personal items before you start driving.
- Take breaks to move around
It’s important to get up and move around every couple of hours. Pull over to stretch, or do some yoga to alleviate your back pain!
