Travel Comfortably

As the temperature outside transitions into more of a brisk sensation, I have noticed an increased number of patients mentioning travelling somewhere warm! Because of this, I figured I would offer the best tip for managing neck and upper back discomfort while sitting in those luxurious and comfortable airline seats (sarcasm). When I travel back to Minnesota to visit family, I always double check to make sure I have my C-shaped neck pillow with me. Without it, I always find myself struggling to find a way to completely allow my neck and head to rest on the plane. The C-shaped neck pillow allow a person to relax their neck and head entirely! If you prefer leaning your head off to the side when napping, you can also use this pillow to rest your head on instead of the hard surface of the window. Safe travels everyone!
