Summertime usually means a time to relax, enjoy the sun. And maybe you’ll take a break from the stress of day-to-day life and unwind by going on a trip. If you’re living with neck or back pain, the thought of traveling is not so relaxing. Sitting in an uncomfortable seat in a car or airplane for any extended period of time while traveling can aggravate neck or back pain if not done correctly.

It’s summer, which means it’s the perfect time to head outdoors for your workout. Paddle boarding is one of my favorite ways to get in some exercise when the weather turns warm. One of the best things about it — other than the fitness benefits — is that you don’t even realize you’re working out.
Running is one of my favorite activities. As your feet hit the pavement over and over again, there’s a rhythm that you come to love. Slowly all the worries that plague your mind start to fade. It’s more than just mental, though. Running is excellent for improving your overall health. And it was something I was eager to get back to doing after I had my back surgery at Laser Spine Institute in 2010. It’s because Laser Spine Institute helped me find relief that I am able to run today.
