Avoiding Pain in the Future

By learning to care for your back, you may avoid any future pain. The following are key components in preventing back and neck pain.

  • Posture-- While sitting, make sure your lower back is supported. Also make sure your mattress is comfortable and supportive.
  • Lifting techniques-- When lifting anything, make sure you bend at your knees and not at your waist.
  • Stretching-- Stretching your back throughout the day can help increase flexibility and strengthen your back.
  • Exercise-- Daily exercise will help keep your back muscles strong and protect them from injury.
