“Lumbar support is important. If your car seat does not supply enough lumbar support then an in-car lumbar support can be purchased.
- Automatic cars place less strain on the back as constant clutch use in a manual places pressure on the lumbar discs.
- If you only find you get back pain on longer journeys, don't try to complete the journey in one go.
- Stop regularly, get out of the car and move around.
- After long periods of driving your back is weaker and more susceptible to injury, so resist the temptation to bend and stretch.”
