Learn How to Travel Stress-Free

A Cost-Free Seminar

By Dr. Rachel Frozenfar, D.C.

 

Experts say the world of air travel has changed -- some say forever. 

 The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press released a poll showing that 25% of travelers had canceled a flight out of a newfound fear of flying.

According to another survey, 29% of travelers said they will not fly or have changed their existing plans.

Those committed to flying, however, will spend additional time standing in line and carrying luggage and laptops.

For those on the go, Dr. Rachel Frozenfar and stress expert Randy Lane will offer tips on how to prevent back and other injuries from prolonged periods of travel.

STRESS RELIEF TECHNIQUES TO BE UNVEILED

"We are seeing patients under increased stress since September 11, says Frozenfar.

I believe that medical personnel need to be sensitive to these changes and offer whatever expertise they can.

I am spending time with my patients-offering them exercises and counseling on how to prevent injuries caused from repetitive stress."

" Traveling by air has changed since September 11, says Manny Cherkas, a regular at Dr. Frozenfar's office.

I recently traveled oversees and noticed that the wait is more than twice as long as it used to be.

I have to carry my luggage, stand and sit for longer periods of time.

By the time I reached my destination I noticed soreness from all of this movement, not to mention the stress of it all."
