Preventing Injury 

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. And 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.
