Caused by a number of factors, including poor posture, inadequate support for the back, and underlying medical conditions.

Alleviate back pain

Some of the steps you can take to alleviate your back pain while driving

Office chair

An ergonomically designed seat that is correctly adjusted can help to reduce the strain on your back.

Car seat

The seat is at the right height and that your hips are slightly higher than your knees. You should also be able to reach the pedals without straining

Invest in back support

Using a lumbar support cushion or a contoured backrest can help to reduce the strain on your back muscles.

Take regular breaks

Taking a break every hour or so can help to alleviate the strain on your back. Stretch your arms and legs and take a few minutes to move around.

Adjust your position regularly:

Change position when driving,  if making a long journey. Move your seat back or forwards, and make sure you are not leaning too far forward or back.

Stretch your back muscles:

Take some time to do simple stretching exercises that target your back. This can help to reduce any tension in your back muscles


If your back pain persists, it is important to see your doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
