Do you know how to prevent back pain and protect your spine?
Most of us experience back pain. Some are simply from strenuous daily activities or poor posture, while others are more serious like slip disc, osteoarthritis, or degenerative disease.
If you want to prevent any of those, then here are some tips for you.
Also, here are some yoga moves that can be of help.
One of the most important things you can do for back pain prevention is to get up and get moving. Why does exercise prevent back pain? Muscles are meant to move, says Robin Lustig, DC, a chiropractor at New Jersey Total Health Center in Lodi and Pompton Plains, N.J. If you aren’t in good shape, you’re more likely to hurt your back and feel pain when you do even simple movements, such as lifting your child from his crib. “Also, exercise helps keep your joints fluid,” Dr. Lustig says. Another reason exercise prevents back pain is that exercise helps you keep your weight down — being overweight, especially around your stomach, can put added strain on your back.
