5 Steps to Avoid Pain on the Plane


Flying is a convenient and efficient mode of transportation, but it can be tough on your body, especially if you're prone to discomfort or pain. Long hours of sitting in a confined space can take a toll on your posture, leading to back pain, neck aches, and even headaches. However, there are several strategies you can adopt to make your flight more comfortable and reduce the pain you feel. One of the most effective steps you can take is to support your pelvis with a towel. In this blog post, we'll explore how to fly with less pain and why supporting your pelvis with a towel is a crucial step in the process.


Use a towel or jacket to support your pelvis

Supporting your pelvis with a towel can make a huge difference in reducing pain during a flight. Roll up a towel and place it under your lower back for added support and comfort. The towel will help maintain the natural curve of your spine and reduce pressure on your lower back. This simple step can help prevent back pain and discomfort.




Invest in a posture training device

A posture training device, like BetterBack is a portable, easy to use device that can drastically help you maintain proper posture while sitting in any type of seat. This can help maintain the natural curve of your spine, reducing pressure on your lower back and promoting better posture.


Stretch and move regularly

Sitting in the same position for long hours can be incredibly tiring and painful. To prevent stiffness and discomfort, it's essential to stretch and move regularly. Take a walk down the aisle, do some stretching exercises, or simply stand up and stretch your legs.


Dress for success

Wearing comfortable and loose-fitting clothing can help you feel more relaxed during the flight. Choose breathable fabrics and layers that can be easily adjusted to your comfort level.


Hydrate and avoid alcohol

Staying hydrated is crucial for reducing discomfort and pain during a flight. Drinking plenty of water will help prevent dehydration, which can lead to headaches and muscle cramps. Avoid alcohol, as it can dehydrate you and increase discomfort.

Flying can be tough on your body, but with a few simple strategies, you can reduce the pain and discomfort you feel. Supporting your pelvis with a towel is a simple yet effective step that can make a significant difference in reducing pain during a flight. With these tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to a more comfortable and pain-free flight.
