How to Prevent Back Pain
Once the pain goes away, take measures to reduce your risk of future lower back pain episodes.
CORRECT POSTURES FOR WORK
Use good posture and follow your physical therapist’s instructions on how to move to ensure proper back biomechanics. Incorporate back-friendly practices into your daily life. For example, use a chair that has good back support at work and at home.
If you stand for long periods at work, wear flat shoes with good arch support and get a box or step about 6 inches high to rest one foot on from time to time.
RIGHT LIFTING POSTURES TO AVOID BACK PAIN
Avoid lifting objects that weigh more than 50 pounds. When you lift heavy objects, lift from the knees and you should contract your abdominal muscles but keep your spine straight, and don’t twist your trunk. As you lift, hold the object close to your body.
Regular exercise can strengthen your muscles, which makes it less likely you’ll injure your back. Incorporate at least 150 minutes of aerobic activity into your routine each week but make sure it includes a proper warm-up. Exercise also can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight because exercise is medicine on its own.
SMOKING CAN CAUSE BACK PAIN
Finally, if you smoke, stop. Smoking accelerates spinal degeneration and contributes to the development of back pain. If you would like guidance or support as you work to quit smoking you ought to talk to your health care provider because they will definitely professional counsel or advise for you.
