Back pain during the holidays takes the joy out of everything. All the activities, events, and shopping can worsen spinal injuries or cause new ones. And trying to power through the pain makes family traditions like tree-trimming, cooking, baking into a very cautionary experience. When selecting a gift for friends or loved ones with back or neck pain they would appreciate a gift designed to help them feel better.
Although the massage devices and foam roller sets don’t work miracles they can ease the stress and discomfort that comes with living with pain.
There is a wealth of products that:
Along with the health benefits, a bath is a nice way to relax after a long day. Gift sets contain a bag of salts, bath bombs, bubble bath, and other goodies.
Massagers have various settings that focus on various areas of the back and thighs with vibration and heat. Each massager is different and they have all kinds of modes. You might have to do a little research but the great thing is that they fit in a car/truck seat, office chair, or reclining chair.
Travel cushions are made to take with you on road trips, work commutes, and are heavy-duty to help prevent slouching and ease low back pain caused by long sitting times.
Roll out the hips, upper back, calves, feet, and other parts at the house or on the road.
Gift a massage from a local chiropractor or physical therapist.
Look for licensed therapists that are specially trained in treating people with spine or neck pain.
Consider a quality office chair. A good chair will have multiple adjustments so you can adjust the armrests, headrest, seat height, and depth. Ergonomic chairs provide more support than a standard office chair.
Heat lamps offer deep penetration that can be used at home for the larger areas of the body like the chest and back. A study found a group of patients that reported their pain levels decreased after six weeks of use.
The American College of Physicians Clinical guidelines recommends yoga as a first step in treating low back pain. As with any exercise program, they need to talk to their doctor before beginning yoga. Yoga Alliance and The International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) are good places to find top qualified instructors.
The gift of relaxation, back support, and especially stress relief of family and friends will give you that fuzzy feeling all over, knowing that you’re helping someone out in a very real way!
Individuals who sit most of the day, like those working in a computer while sitting in an office chair, are also at high risk for non-accidental spine injury. Office ergonomics, or computer ergonomics, can help minimize the risk such as the dangers associated with prolonged sitting in an office chair, and carpal tunnel syndromes, such as lower back pain, neck strain, and leg pain.
