There's a reason why
back pain is one of the most common complaints heard by doctors—it is very
difficult to prevent. In most cases, people find themselves seeking out
an orthopaedic doctor after back pain appears. While you may not always
be able to prevent back pain, there are things you can do to lessen your risk.
To keep back pains in check, start by focusing on your work. If you spend
all day in front of the computer, maintain good posture with your spine
straight and your lower back pressed into your chair. When you work out,
do exercises that strengthen your core muscles to protect your spine.
If back pain does strike, don't let it go unchecked. Early pain management
can prevent the need for future surgeries.
