Today, with over 190-million drivers in North America, our reliance on the automobile is unprecedented. The increased time we spend in our cars has led to an increase in the physical damage we are subjecting our bodies to. When we drive, all of the fundamentals of ergonomics come into play: posture, force and repetition.
Just the act of placing our hands on the steering wheel puts stress on the shoulders and upper back. In addition, the two most significant contributors of neck pain while driving are insufficient headroom and inadequate seat positioning. The latter is in part due to car manufacturers recent concern with people's comfort in cars. It is the postural design of the common car seat that has greatly contributed to the overall tension and fatigue of today's commuters.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
