Back pain is one of the most common pain people feel during a life. Most people have back pain at least once, and it is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Fortunately, you can prevent or relieve most back pain cases. Most back pain gradually improves with proper home treatments and self-care, usually within a few weeks. If it doesn’t improve, visit your doctor.

  • Prevention

Signs and symptoms of back pain can include:

● Muscle ache
● Shooting or stabbing pain
● Pain that radiates down your leg
● Pain that worsens with bending, lifting, standing or walking
● Pain that improves with reclining

These factors might put you at greater risk of developing back pain:

Age. Back pain is more common as you get older, starting around age 30 or
Lack of exercise. Weak, unused muscles in your back and abdomen might lead to back pain
Excess weight. Excess body weight puts extra stress on your back
Diseases. Some types of arthritis and cancer can contribute to back pain
Improper lifting. Using your back instead of your legs can lead to back pain
Psychological conditions. People prone to depression and anxiety appear to have a greater risk of back pain
Smoking. This reduces blood flow to the lower spine, which can keep your body from delivering enough nutrients to the disks in your back. Smoking also slows healing

Seek immediate care if your back pain:

● Causes new bowel or bladder problems
● Is accompanied by fever
● Follows a fall, blow to your back or other injury

Contact a doctor if:

● The pain is severe and doesn't improve with rest
● The pain is spreading down one or both legs, especially if it extends below the knee and causes weakness, numbness or tingling in one or both legs
● If you experience unexplained weight loss. Also, see your doctor if you start having back pain for the first time after age 50, or if you have a medical history of cancer, osteoporosis, steroid use, or excessive drug or alcohol use

You might avoid back pain or prevent its recurrence by improving your physical condition and learning and practicing proper body mechanics

Use your body properly:

● Stand smart - don't slouch. Maintain a neutral pelvic position. If you must stand for long periods, place one foot on a low footstool to take some of the load off your lower back. Alternate feet. Good posture can reduce the stress on back muscles
● Sit smart. Choose a seat with good lower back support, armrests and a swivel base. Placing a pillow or rolled towel in the small of your back can maintain its normal curve. Keep your knees and hips level. Change your position frequently, at least every half hour
● Avoid heavy lifting, if possible, but if you must lift something heavy, let your legs do the work. Keep your back straight — no twisting — and bend only at the knees. Hold the load close to your body. Find a lifting partner if the object is heavy or awkward

To keep your back healthy and strong:

● Exercise. Regular low impact aerobic activities — those that don't strain or jolt your back — can increase strength and endurance in your back and allow your muscles to function better. Walking and swimming are good choices. Get a doctor's consultation about which activities you might try
● Build muscle strength and flexibility. Abdominal and back muscle exercises, which strengthen your core, help condition these muscles so that they work together like a natural corset for your back. Flexibility in your hips and upper legs aligns your pelvic bones to improve how your back feels. Your doctor or physical therapist can tell you which exercises are right for you
● Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight strains back muscles. If you're overweight, trimming down can prevent back pain
● Quit smoking. I know it’s hard to do so effectively, please get help on this

Buyer beware

Because back pain is so common, numerous products promise prevention or relief. But there’s no definitive evidence that special shoes, shoe inserts, back supports, specially designed furniture or stress management programs can help. In addition, there doesn’t appear to be one type of mattress that’s best for people with back pain. It’s probably a matter of what feels most comfortable to you.
