Tips and exercises to help relieve or prevent back pain or neck pain while on holidays:

Here are some easy things for you to try to help relieve or prevent back pain or neck during your holiday.

Trapezius muscle stretch

Mid back extension

Generally rolling a towel at the short edge is best but if it is uncomfortable try it with a few different thicknesses until you find one that is comfortable and provides a stretch through your chest

Knee to chest

Go for a gentle walk outside

Fresh air and gentle exercise can do wonders for a mild headache especially if it’s caused or aggravated by spending too much time working or on a computer. Exercise is also great for stress which is one of the main causes of tension headaches. Get outside and go for a half hour walk, take deep breaths all the way into your stomach. Allow your shoulders a neck to relax while you’re walking, even try stopping to do some gentle stretches during your walk.
