What To Do Every Day To Prevent Back Pain

I know how overwhelming the internet can be, especially when you are in pain and trying to find answers. So in order to cut your time in half and get you the information quicker I’ll do the searching for you. Not all the answers on the internet you receive may be 100% accurate. So I want to help you get the best information possible. Below is a website that I browsed through and found that it has some useful information. Please let me know what you think.

  • First thing in the morning, don’t sit on the bed. Instead of sitting and rounding your back first thing, turn over and lie face down. Prop gently on elbows, but not so high that it strains. Don’t do this if it hurts. It should not hurt to simply lie straight. It should feel good and help you straighten out first thing. Get out of bed without sitting.
  • Count how many times you bend each day. Imagine the injury to your back by bending wrong that many times each day.
  • Lift using the squat and lunge, not by bending over.
  • Notice the huge amount of forward bending exercises, crunches, toe touching and most PIlates . Most people do not need more forward bending any more than they need a Tetanus shot every day. Use when needed instead of daily overdoing.
  • Notice bent forward and hunching positioning and exercises in fitness magazines. Then notice your own habits.
  • Don’t hold rigid “posture.” healthy movement is dynamic. Stopping back pain does not involve never moving the spine. healthy motion is crucial for health.
  • Stand and carry things without rounding your upper back forward or leaning back (exaggerating lumbar curve to the back or side).
  • When sitting, it is not true that you must “keep feet on floor” or keep “flat thighs” – parallel to the ground. That is often repeated, but it does not change injurious mechanics and is not needed. Focus on the main issue, not the trivia.
  • Don’t tighten your muscles to move or exercise. Gluteal and ab tightening was a pop fitness fad, not healthy medicine.
  • Walk, run, and jump lightly. You don’t have to tiptoe. Your body needs motion and impact for health. Just don’t jolt your joints into dust.


    Pain From Food? There are foods that promote inflammation – dairy, meat, refined sugar, white flour. Even though most back pain is not inflammatory in nature, for those who load on inflammatory foods, and are sensitive to them, unhealthy changes can hurt. Instead, eat anti-inflammatory foods – leafy green vegetables, flaxseed, cherries, grape skins, blueberries, spices like ginger and turmeric.

    Unhealthful fad diets are increasingly recognized for joint and muscle pain effects, specifically Atkins and other low carbohydrate diets that restrict fruit rather than junk sugar. People will stick to these diets no matter how unhealthy; they’d rather lose weight through a fad diet than through healthier ways (low carbohydrate diets reduce water in your muscles – water weight loss – making muscles susceptible to pain, weakness, cramping, and other health troubles).
