Back Pain Prevention and Screening

Written by Mystic on Thursday, September 13, 2007

Regular exercise and stretching before participating in sports decreases your risk of back pain.
Strengthening exercises build stronger muscles that can support the back. Stretching increases flexibility and decreases the risk of injury. Swimming and water exercises are non-weight-bearing, and put little stress on the back. In addition to toning muscles, exercise helps keep weight off.

Maintaining good posture and body alignment, lifting properly, losing weight, and quitting smoking will help prevent back pain
Rely on the legs to provide the majority of strength and support when lifting heavy objects. Keep your back straight and well-supported when sitting or driving.
