Sitting posture while driving

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
Sitting posture while driving
Hello,

I constantly try to educate patients on proper posture, but because people (myself included) spend so much time driving and sitting for prolonged periods of time. Driving can mean different for different people. It may be a way of leisure for some or as an everyday activity to commute to office. Driving for long time has always accompanied with some or the other musculoskeletal problems. It become a leading cause of back pain to our fast pace life.The problem is treated but the root cause of it is never looked after or we just don't bother about it much..

Why we get the pain or associated problems when we drive for long time?

Poor posture while driving can produce a repetitive load to the tissues that causes sustained stress. Daily prolonged drives apply loads to the spine that can cause viscoelastic tissues to slowly deform and creep. Simply staying in the car seat with poor posture long enough will eventually ensure damage. Sustained load and resultant deformation/creep causes a progressive reduction in tissue strength.With your hands in the proper position on the steering wheel, the thoracic spine, scapula and shoulder joint have a better chance of remaining in neutral. usually, we hold steering wheel with one hand and lean to other side.due to leaning hip bone( iliac crest) and 12th rib approximate; this will contribute to shortness (tightness) of the quadratus lumborum or latissimus dorsi

If the pelvis is rotated, it will contribute to lumbar or SI pathology and overactivity of the TFL(muscle). If the knees are even slightly superior to the hips, then there will be hip flexors muscles over activity or shortness, and hip extensor inhibition or weakness. Prolonged sitting on the glutes can cause poor circulation and lack of oxygen to the tissue, contributing to inhibition.

A person driving with a clutch who has poor or limited ankle dorsiflexion (like after ankle fracture) can perpetuate overly active hip flexors because they will pull the foot off the clutch using the hip flexors, instead of dorsiflexion at the ankle.

Some Do’s:
1) Select a car that matches your height and suits your work.
2) Change posture as much as possible take frequent Microbreaks ,recommended atleast 15 minutes, every 2 hours
3) Place hand on steering wheels so that elbows are close to your side and not so high that you have to reach up for the wheel.
4) Place hands at 3 o’clock or 9 o’clock position this will reduce the amount of strain on shoulders and put hands in safer position.
5) It is advisable to keep two hands in steering wheel except while shifting gears. Change hand posture frequently to reduce fatigue and improve circulation.
6) Learn Microbreaks: An example of a "microbreak" for driving in the car is squeezing the shoulder blades together for 20-30 seconds and repeating 2-3 times. Repeating anterior and posterior pelvic tilts and lateral tilts for a minute or two is sometimes helpful. Other microbreaks for driving include cervical range of motion, and shoulder retraction with elevation and depression.
Some Dont’s:
1) Avoid lifting after driving long hours because your muscles are tired your ligaments are stretched and disc are at risk of injury, give yourself some time to stretch and relax.
2) The death grip posture, the one arm cool dude” the Wrist resting at 12 o’clock position on steering wheel and fingers flop over the top, arm straight out in front and one arm propped on your window.


The longest journey begins with a right sitting posture, not with a turn of the ignition key !!!! dive safe

I am feeling very tired and feel very sleepy all the time. Can you help me to get rid from this problem.
Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication.

If you can not sleep, please do not do the mistake of trying hard to sleep. Otherwise situation may worsen. Do a good amount of physical work during daytime. During night, lay down over bed. Do not try hard to sleep. Sleep will automatically come to you after sometime.

I'm a 23 year male. I was good in my studies at school level. Gradually it decreased. I've never took my studies seriously, I had a confidence that even if I study a week before exams, I'd pass. During my graduation I had a breakup and to come out of it wasn't easy for me. I can't explain it in this mail but every day was like hell to me, I couldn't sleep, eat properly and what not. Slowly I've started getting out of my self pity thoughts. In these situations I thought that I wouldn't pass my xams but somehow I did. After that I've done a course but I didn't had enough confidence in me, by that time I was different than what I was in my early days. I could hardly remember or understand the concept. I couldn't think creatively, so I thought to go for another course, now i've completed that but same again. I'm out of my confidence, cannot concentrate on anything, after failing in an interview I thought that at least from now I'll prepare again but I can't even start a thing. My job profile needs creative thinking, but I cannot even think normally. Some times I feel my cognitive functions aren't normal. What should I do to get out of my situation? I need to improve the functioning of my brain. I should have confidence, passion. Should I consult a psychiatrist? Please someone suggest me a detailed answer.

lybrate-user, you began by telling about your problems with studies and how your grades/marks have lowered in recent years since you completed schooling. As I can see, much of your concerns are about how your abilities and thinking are not matching upto your expectations. You have taken different courses and did your best to keep yourself confident but it hasn't helped you much. You seem to be having greater worries about how you think and why your thoughts are not focused on any particular goal. A bad experience in a relationship also added up to your worries and distressing mental condition. A relationship usually distracts and preoccupies with attachment issues which makes life difficult to handle. These long series of negative events and circumstances have reduced your overall motivation and lead to a distressing mental state where you constantly worry about your abilities. From a clinical perspective, it would not be possible to make any valid diagnosis as of now. For that more interviewing is needed and clinical tests need to be done (psychological assessments). Many times due to repeated failures, we develop a negative attitude towards ourselves and remain in a constant state of depressed mood and low energy. In your situation, it seems you do require medical consultation. But medicines won't help you for long and may not alleviate all the problems. Negative thinking develops over time and mostly it is not a direct effect of one or two circumstances. Low confidence, self-pity thoughts, poor concentration, low motivation, lack of energy and low self esteem are some of the persistent effects of negative thought process. You also believe that you may not be having normal cognitive functions. You seem to over-think about your performance, which is impacting your life achievements. Negative thoughts result from negative beliefs about self. When we think we are unworthy then we lose the confidence to take initiatives and get biased towards seeing all negative outcomes. We don't welcome any new changes in our life cheerfully. This has happened with you that with every new goal you have set for yourself, you have gradually become hopeless with that achievement. This is mainly because you don't feel much confident towards yourself. Deep into your mind, you believe you don't deserve a positive outcome. We can say that you think in a very black-and-white mode of thought process. This implies that either things should be all good for you or all bad. There is no mid-way for you currently. You are achieving some things in your life but you don't see them as worthy to change your life altogether. Here comes the importance of understanding your own thoughts and beliefs. It is important for you to know how your long held beliefs about yourself have impacted your mental state. It is not entirely some brain chemical which is causing this distress. Body is equally effected by how we think, than being just the other way around. So for temporary benefits, you may take medicines. But for long term relief and cure, you need to see a Clinical Psychologist and take Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) which is a form of psychotherapy. CBT is a very effective therapy for long term benefits from depression and anxiety. All the Best.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
