Tips for Managing Back Pain

If you’re reading this, you’re likely already experiencing back pain.

The expert staff at the EvergreenHealth Neuroscience, Spine & Orthopedic Institute offers these tips to help manage and alleviate the back pain you may be experiencing.

  • Remain active (under the supervision of your physician) including appropriate exercise for your age and health status.
  • Warm up before exercising or other physical activities, especially after prolonged sitting.
  • Avoid prolonged inactivity or bed rest.
  • Maintain proper posture.
  • If you work in an office, make sure that you have an ergonomic working environment, and minimize prolonged sitting.
  • Always lift with your legs rather than with your back. Keep the object you’re lifting close to your body, and don’t twist when lifting.
  • Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes.
  • Maintain a healthy diet
  • Quit smoking
