CAR SEAT BACK PAIN

The perfect car seat for back pain sufferers, has not yet been invented.

Chinnor_sciatica

The scientific research, has not found the ideal seat, which will care for people of different heights, weights & sizes.

Here are five simple tests, to check the driving position & layout of a car.

PLEASE CLICK HEADINGS FOR INFORMATION
  • GENERAL TIPS

    Open or Close

    • Adjust your seat for maximum comfort so that the hips & knees are well flexed with arm relaxed & bent to the steering wheel

    • If there is little or no support to the lumbar region, fit a cushion or one of the many manufactured supports available

    • If on a long journey, stop occasionally & walk round to relax your legs & also ease your spine

  • POSTURE

    Open or Close

    Do not over stretch your spine

    • Ensure that the car head rest, is positioned correctly, if it's not adjusted right to your head it won't help at all

    • It is normally to be raised to the point, where the bottom is level with the top of the ears

    • You should look for a car seat, that offers good lumbar support & allows you to reach the foot pedals, without feeling cramped or overstretched

    • When driving, maintain an upright posture, adjust the angle of your backrest so that your arms are positioned comfortably, on the steering wheel

    Sciatica

    • Adjust your mirrors carefully, as making full use of them, will minimise the need for you to twist around in your seat

    • Ideally, when travelling long distances, you will stop & take a break every hour

  • 1) The Praying Test.

    Open or Close

    • Sitting in the driver's seat, place the hands together, fingertips & palms touching, pointing outwards from the chest as if praying

    • The wrists should actually be touching the chest

    • In this position the hands will form a fairly accurate perpendicular to the body & it should be possible to see if they are pointing at the centre of the steering wheel

    • If they are not then the wheel may be offset.

  • 2) The Fist Test

    Open or Close

    With the seat in the normal driving position ( i.e. a position where the clutch can be fully depressed without stretching & the hips well back into the seat).

    Make a fist with the left hand keeping the thumb to the side of the index finger.

    • The depth of such a fist will measure approximately 50mm & it should be possible to place the fist on the crown of the head

    • If it is only possible to insert the flat of the hand between the roof & head then there is insufficient headroom.

  • 3) The Look Down Test

    Open or Close

    With both hands placed evenly on the steering wheel look down at the legs

    • It should be possible to see equal amounts of both legs between the arms

    • Frequently the left leg will be visible but the right leg will be obscured by the right arm which may indicate that the shoulder girdle is rotated to the left in relation to the pelvis.

  • 4) The Right Leg Test

    Open or Close

    This test should be performed after driving the car for a short while

    • Once again, look down & examine the position of the right leg

    • Is it elevated above the level of the left or has it fallen out towards the edge of the seat?

    • Is the right foot roughly in line with the thigh as it should be.

  • 5) The Kerb Height Test

    Open or Close

    Swing the right leg out of the car as though getting out & place the right foot on the ground

    • Try & ensure the lower leg (shin & calf) is in a vertical position

    • Now look at the surface of the right thigh. It should be sloping down towards the knee

    • If it is sloping upwards (i.e. if the knee is higher than the hip) you will have difficulty when exiting this vehicle



Spinal manipulation is effective for low back pain (BEAM trial, 2004)
Government guidelines recommend osteopathy for
persistent low back pain (NICE, 2009)

There are many causes of low back pain. An assessment can be very beneficial if you have been suffering from pain for a while, or have recently had a baby, or are about to take up or change an exercise regime.
