Introduction to the Booklet

"If you travel, either for business or pleasure, and you have lower back pain, this guidebook will help you survive and thrive on your trip. Whether your pain is acute or chronic, you will find tips to help you travel more comfortably. In addition, this booklet will guide you in finding the most appropriate practitioner to take care of you should that need arise once you've arrived at your destination. I've also included a Health Care Summary and a Travel Checklist to help you prepare for your journey.

The idea for this guidebook started when I noticed that my patients were coming back from their vacations with the same complaints: Their backs would hurt while they were away, so they'd get a massage, which would only make them feel worse; or they would have an injury, but didn't know how to find a chiropractor; or they knew they needed ice, but didn't know where to find any. When I realized that I was saying the same things repeatedly, I figured it would be easier to write down all of the vital information that everybody needed. Mari Ann Robson had a travel newsletter that she sent to her clients, so I wrote an article for her about traveling with back or neck pain. It was that article that formed the outline for this booklet.

This guidebook is a result of the advice I've given to my patients over the years. It is to be used as a guide to help you to work with your health care providers. I made it short and to the point so you'd read it, and small enough so you could tuck it in your purse or carry-on for reference. Make notes in it. Highlight the pertinent information. Use the resources at the end of the booklet to educate yourself. I've always felt that the better educated and informed a patient is, the better the care that patient receives.

Happy travels!"
