Eliminate Back Pain on Your Summer Road Trip

Are you taking a summer road trip? Excited for the fun times and great experience with your family but worried about what sitting in the same position for days is going to do to your back?

You aren’t alone. Millions of Americans suffer with back pain, but luckily there are a few things you can do to help alleviate it.

Let’s look at how to eliminate back pain on your summer road trip.

Prepare for Your Trip

The best thing you can do in the weeks before your road trip is to use your hot tub on a regular basis.

Doing this helps you control any ongoing back pain you have and  helps control your symptoms on the road.

Regular hot tub usage helps decompress your spine and improve the circulation. This essentially loosens your back and makes it more flexible so sitting for long periods isn’t so traumatic.

The warm water and its buoyancy combine with your hot tub jets also targets your lower back and shoulders, relieving pressure in those areas. You’ll find your back and shoulders are often the areas most sore during a car trip.

Take Care During the Trip

Here are a few tips you can use during your long summer road trip to lessen your back pain:

  • Stop frequently and move around. Just like a person with an office job, you want to stop, stretch, and walk every hour or two. Once you stop, do some small back stretches. Stretch your quadriceps and your hamstrings. Then, walk around for a bit. This will help stimulate your circulation and lessen back pain.
  • Try and stretch a bit as you drive (as long as you aren’t the driver!).
  • Adjust your seat so you have back support.
  • You can also adjust your headrest. This helps support your neck and keep the pressure off your back. Tilt it back just a bit so your head can rest on it.
  • If it’s not too hot, and you have heated seats, you can use them as heat therapy. Similar to the effects of a hot tub or a heating pad, your seat warmer can also help relieve back pain. Do keep your air conditioner on if it’s summertime!
  • If you are the driver, use cruise control so you can actually move your leg around.

Take Care During Your Vacation

If there is a hot tub at your hotel or lodging, make use of it. Use it at the end of a driving day and throughout your stay.

You also want to exercise and stretch during your trip to ensure your back pain is minimal or gone.

Final Thoughts

Taking a road trip with the family is great fun during the summer months. It’s a lifetime of memories your family will remember.

In order to return home without back pain, you can use the tips here to keep it under control. If you have chronic back pain, please consult your doctor before traveling.

Earth Day and Hot Spring Spas

Ever wondered how hot tubs affect the environment? In honor of Earth Day and Hot Spring Spas, we look at the built-in green features of Hot Spring Spas!

The Origins of Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22 with events held worldwide to show support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, it is now coordinated on a global scale by the Earth Day Network. Nearly 200 countries celebrate Earth Day.

What do Earth Day and Hot Spring Spas have in common? Well, you probably already care about clean water and saving energy, so Earth Day comes naturally to you. What you may not know is that Hot Springs Spas have many features that work to take care of our environment. Let’s look at the green features of Hot Spring Spas:

Energy Smart®

Not only will you save energy with the Energy Smart system, but you’ll save money. With Hot Spring Spas’ Energy Smart® system, each spa is built with a combination of energy-efficient features that simultaneously provide you lower operating costs and the best value over time.

EnergySmart

The Energy Smart Spa:

You can enjoy lower monthly operating costs with Hot Spring Spas energy-efficient spas. Here’s how Hot Spring Spas makes your spa energy-efficient:

  • Totally insulating every Highlife Collection model with multiple layers of high density, polyurethane foam that’s also used to insulate commercial freezers
  • Using the innovative FiberCor™ insulation in the Limelight Collection models, which fills the cabinet completely to a density that is 4 times greater than the ½ lb. foam used on most spas
  • Manufacturing all spa covers to ensure a custom-fit and tight seal to lock in warm air, and have a dense foam core with a high R-value for insulation
  • Continuously circulating spa water with the SilentFlo 5000® circulation pump that uses less energy than a 40-watt light bulb
  • The powerful WaveMaster® jet pumps dedicated to powering the jets and are only activated when you need them
  • The SmartJet® system lets you direct power only to the jets you choose, for less horsepower and energy
  • Heaters maximize the transfer of heat to the water for maximum efficiency
  • Dimmer-controlled LED lights that use less energy than a standard light bulb in all models

The Earth Smart® Spa

Hot Spring® builds some of the most environmentally friendly spas on the market. Each one is designed with our environmental footprint in mind.

The FreshWater Salt System:

The FreshWater Salt System uses fewer chemicals than traditional water care, reducing harsh odors for softer-feeling water that is gentler on eyes and skin.

With fewer additives needed, the water can stay clean for a full year before it needs to be drained and refilled. This conserves water, saves money and reduces time previously spent on complicated water care.

Green Manufacturing:

In addition, Hot Spring Spas has made an environmental commitment when it comes to their manufacturing with:

  • Projects for energy reductions that significantly decreased carbon dioxide emissions — the equivalent of planting 374 acres of trees.
  • Enhancements to their water system controls that save over 1 million gallons of water each year.
  • Recycling over 2.5 million pounds of materials each year.
  • Wrapping each Hot Spring spa in material containing approximately 50% post-consumer recycled content that is 100% recyclable.
  • Producing their own power 24/7 that uses clean-burning natural gas and much more!

Standard-setting:

Hot Spring Spas also meet California Energy Commission standards, and they won the ENVY Award for energy-efficient hot tub design.
