Q: How can I prevent back pain?


Mon, Oct 31st, 2011
Posted in Ask the Expert



A: According to the American Chiropractic Association, to prevent back pain you should:

• Maintain a healthy diet and weight.

• Remain active-under the supervision of your doctor of chiropractic.

• Avoid prolonged inactivity or bed rest.

• Warm up or stretch before exercising or other physical activities, such as gardening.

• Maintain proper posture.

• Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes.

• Sleep on a mattress of medium firmness to minimize any curve in your spine.

• Lift with your knees, keep the object close to your body, and do not twist when lifting.

• Quit smoking. Smoking impairs blood flow, resulting in oxygen and nutrient deprivation to spinal tissues.

• Work with your doctor of chiropractic to ensure that your computer workstation is ergonomically correct.
