How to Prevent Back Pain | Back Pain Relief


It’s very, very difficult to prevent back
pain. Unfortunately, we spend somewhere between
one-half and two-thirds of our day-to-day in a sitting position for most people. Then you tack on the bending and the lifting
and the carrying that goes on during any day. Unfortunately, there is an imbalance of mechanical
forces on the spine. Usually during the younger ages while this
imbalance has started, we are unaware this is occurring. We are unaware that there is some tissue breakdown
in our spine. Tissue only hurts when it meets a certain
threshold, so it has to be positioned incorrectly long enough, it needs to be irritated long
enough for there to be pain. The point is that it’s often too late. You’re doing your daily tasks, you’re not
realizing you’re doing them wrong and then “bam”, there are going to be some problems. If we can learn how to adjust our day better
with regards to standing more and stretching more during the work day if we’re at a sitting
job. If we’re exercising at the gym with a very
good balance of sitting exercises, standing exercises, lying exercises, we might be able
to prevent it, but it’s a really hard chore to literally prevent the back pain. I think the largest population of people that
don’t have back pain, really it’s a genetic component. They’re really, in a lesser sense, lucky that
they were born into a family history that had a straight spine, a normal spine and that
maybe their jobs require them to do a lot of different activities, not one sustained
activity throughout the day. By and large, it is very hard to prevent and
you can do your best with exercising and stretching, but ultimately you may not be aware that something
is going wrong until it’s too late.
