Is your driving position giving you backache?

When we ask customers what’s important to them when they’re buying a new car, comfort is often highly rated.

Of course this makes sense – who doesn’t want to feel comfortable when they drive – but what is it that makes some cars more comfortable than others?

You might think that the big leathery arm chairs of 4x4s make the comfiest cars, but in reality it usually just comes down to seat position.

And it might just be that yours isn’t set up for optimum comfort.

After a recent survey we realised that this was perhaps a topic for more investigation, so we invited local health & fitness expert George Anderson to come in and show us how to set up a car seat properly.

If you takes you a couple of minutes to adjust your back and stand upright after climbing out of your car, then you definitely want to watch this video.

George runs through the key adjustments that will get you set up in the most comfortable position, and gives you a couple of stretches to do when you do get out after a long stint behind the wheel.

Back ache is commonly caused by being in the wrong position for extended periods of time, so it makes sense to get yourself sitting comfortably before setting off on a journey that’s going to last longer than 30 minutes.

Here’s the video – leave us a comment below it to let us know what you think!
