We have all heard of needing a vacation
a vacation, and the aches and pains encountered while traveling generally aren’t in the itinerary. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Even if getting to your vacation destination is less than pleasant, there are ways to decrease the pain and strain on your body. We’ll show you how.

Lack of activity and keeping your body in the same position for an extended period of time can take its toll on the legs, back, neck, and other parts of the body.
