Summer Travel: Fun, Sun, and…PAIN

Nicolas Perez, M.D. – Korunda Pain Management Center

Summer Travel:  Fun, Sun, and…PAINWhen we think of taking a vacation, we typically visualize relaxation, and we look forward to a peaceful experience.

After all, vacations are a time to get away from our stress-filled lives and visit family, friends, or enjoy quiet time on the beach basking in the sun. In reality, these things hold true, but there is one blinding caveat that we all seem to gloss over—traveling! Whether you’re driving, taking a train or plane, traveling can be hard on the body.

Hauling luggage, parking the car at the airport, waiting in the security line, worrying about catching our connecting flights, or traveling in the car for long distance in heavy traffic are all unpleasant experiences that we encounter while trying to get to our favorite destination.

All of these additional activities can cause many people to suffer from aches and pains in their joints. With the extra wear and tear on our bodies, increasing pain and muscle stiffness can leave lingering effects, causing migraines, muscle soreness, backaches, sciatica and the list goes on and on. For those that suffer from arthritis or other musculoskeletal issues, their discomfort may be intensified and in some cases, permanent unless they seek help from a medical professional that specializes in pain.

Korunda Pain Management Center is a state of the art facility that specializes in the treatment of acute and chronic pain management. They provide the utmost quality care for their patients and provide for their pain management needs.
