Tips to Avoid Back Pain

Back pain may be the result of trauma – like a fall or an accident. It could also be the result of an everyday activity done incorrectly like lifting an object or sitting for a long time in front of the computer. Back pain can also be due to poor posture, spinal problems, arthritis, obesity, etc.

Back pain is extremely common, but it can be prevented by protecting the spine with these simple but important exercises.

Exercise: One of the most important things you can do for back pain prevention.

Maintain proper posture: Being aware of your posture can help you sit and stand tall, and it may also help you maintain full freedom of movement and functional mobility.

Correct Postures

So, is there an easy way to sit with better posture? Will this help with back pain?

Find the best sleeping position: Finding a sleeping position that works for you can help you avoid placing unnecessary strain on your back or neck.

Sleeping Poses

Drink plenty of water: Our bodies are comprised of approximately 70% water. Enough water keeps us fluid, rather than stiff. Drinking plenty of water enhances the height of intervertebral disks, keeping them healthy and allowing them to function efficiently as shock absorbers.

Drink Water

Reduce stress: You probably don’t realize how much stress can impact your back health. Stress causes you to tense your muscles, and the constant tension of this kind can cause back pain. Reduce your stress levels by deep breathing exercises and meditation.
