January 30th, 2009

There are few things worse than living everyday in back pain. Billions of people around the world live in constant back pain. There are several things that you can do to help prevent and reduce back pain.

1. Get moving. Exercise is one of the most important things you can do for your back. Exercise actually keeps your spine healthy. It can be hard to be motivated to exercise. Think of your favorite activity that is exercise related. Find something that you enjoy to make sure that you actually do it. You’d be surprised how much a little exercise can help. All it takes is 30 minutes of exercise every day (or most days) of the week. Make sure that whatever form of exercise you choose, it gets you breathing heavier and faster. Don’t leave out the strength training to make sure your muscles are healthy and strong too. Walking, jogging, biking and swimming are excellent forms of exercise to choose from.

2. Lose weight. Lugging around all that extra weight makes for hard work for your back and spine. Over half of Americans are considered overweight. Obesity also affects the onset of diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, heart disease and back pain. True, the spine was designed to distribute your body’s weight. However, too much weight can strain the spine. If this weight isn’t taken off, your spine will begin to wear out.

3. See your doctor. When was the last time you went to the doctor? Checkups are important, especially regular checkups. You need to plan on having a checkup at least twice a year. If is definitely time to see your doctor if you are in back pain. Consult your doctor on which back
pain treatment options are available for you.

4. Good posture. Remember when your mom used to tell you to “Sit Up” and “Don’t slouch?” Good ‘ole Mom knew what she was talking about. Slouching and slumping (while you are sitting or standing) makes your muscles work harder. Having good posture is an important step in protecting your spine.

5. Rest Properly. It is so important that you sleep on the right mattress. Your mattress could be affecting your bad back more than anything else. Get a mattress that keeps your mattress properly aligned. Sleeping and resting in the right position (in your natural position) keeps your muscles relaxed and refreshed. Of course we recommend a memory foam mattress to help you eliminate your back pain!

Get rid of that back pain. Keep it from ever presenting itself. Follow these simple and easy steps to keep your back and spine free from pain.
