Preventing Back Pain

There are various ways to prevent back pain, enabling you to live a healthier, more active life. This article will provide you with some practical tips on how to avoid back pain.

Tips to Prevent Back Pain

One of the best ways to prevent back pain is to keep your back muscles strong. Follow these steps to help protect your back and prevent back pain:

  • Do muscle-strengthening and stretching exercises at least 2 days a week.
  • Stand and sit up straight.
  • Avoid heavy lifting. If you do lift something heavy, bend your knees and keep your back straight. This way, your leg muscles will do most of the work.
  • Get active and eat healthy. Being overweight can strain your back. Getting regular physical activity and choosing healthy foods can help you stay at a healthy weight.
