  • Back pain that affect 80 percent of the humanity at some point in life, is often caused by everyday bad habits that stress and strain the anatomy. Relearning how to move and strengthen entire body can help with back pain prevention or lead to better pain management.

  • Back pain comes in all forms (from a slight ache to a sharp piercing sensation). If you don’t yet have back pain, you might be surprised to learn that an obvious injury isn’t the only cause. Often it can result from repeated bad habits that stress the body.

  • If you’re battling back pain now and need better pain management or want to take steps for back pain prevention, make the effort to undo these bad habits:

  • • The failure to perform any exercise, particularly abdominal strengthening exercise, ercises, may lead to poor posture and increased low back pain. Exercises for back pain prevention include pilates or other trunk or core strengthening activities that can increase stability in the back muscles. Cardiovascular exercises such as swimming, walking and bicycling are also advised along with improving flexibility.

  • • Poor posture can add strain to muscles and put stress on the spine. Over time, the stress of poor posture can change the anatomical characteristics of the spine, leading to the possibility of constricted blood vessels and nerves, as well as problems with muscles, discs and joint.

  • • Often back injuries occur when we try to lift heavy objects and do so incorrectly. Bend your knees and use the power of your legs, keeping the weight close to the body. Also, be sure to avoid twisting.

  • • Keep your weight under control for back pain prevention. Being overweight, especially in the mid-section, shifts your entire center of gravity forward and puts additional strain on your back muscles. Try to stay within 5 kg of your ideal weight to avoid experiencing unnecessary back pain. Exercise and a healthy diet can help toward this goal.

  • • Nicotine restricts the flow of blood to the discs that cushion the vertebrae and increases the rate of degenerative change. Cigarette smoking also reduces calcium absorption and prevents new bone growth, leaving smokers with double the risk of an osteoporotic fracture compared with non-smokers.

  • • Calcium and vitamin D are essential for bone strength. If you don’t get enough of these nutrients in your daily diet, discuss the possibility of supplements with your doctor.

  • • Limiting activity as a means of pain management when you’re experiencing back pain can be counterproductive. Activity increases blood flow to the affected area, decreasing inflammation and reducing muscle tension.
