Tips for Preventing Back Pain: Part III

Back pain is a not only a pain in the back, but also a pain in the a**, figuratively speaking, since it can leave you missing out on festivities of the holiday season. There are many simple things you can do for yourself to help prevent back pain as well as reduce current back pain you may already be experiencing. Here are just a few:

  • Sleep on a firm mattress and box spring that doesn't sag. Sleep in a position that allows you to maintain the natural curve in your back.
  • Warm up before exercise or sports. Increasing muscle temperature and mobility beforehand will reduce the risk of injury.
  • Maintain/adopt a healthy lifestyle. Obesity and smoking increase the incidence of back pain.
