Preventing back pain may be the simplest way to deal with it. Get some tips.
B. Avoid heavy weights
Safe lifting involves using your knees to spare your back. Bend your knees, tighten your abdominal muscles, and keep the object being lifted close to your body.
C. Strengthen your abs
This exercise should be done if stretching backward causes you pain. The most important muscles to strengthen to avoid back pain are the core abdominals.
D. Strengthen back muscles
The muscles on either side of the spine should be strengthened by doing extension exercises. These should be done when you have a disc problem or when forward bending causes you pain.
E. Interrupt long periods of sitting
If you sit for long periods of time, force yourself to get up from your chair as much as your work environment will permit. Sitting loads the spine and compresses the discs, leading to disc problems. Slaving over a computer for long periods of time can also cause posture problems, such as kyphosis, and neck problems.
F. Slow down
Slow down activities for two days if in severe pain. This is to give rest to the muscles which are in spasm and injured.
G. Stretching exercises
Include stretching in your fitness program to avoid stiffness, which causes pain. Another reason to stay flexible is that stiff muscles are a precursor to injury.
H. Consult a specialist
Back pain is tough and once routine activities are hampered, it is time to consult a specialist.
