Here Are the Tips to Protect Your Lower Back!!

While involved in extensive tasks, such as lifting heavy objects, twisting or working straight for hours on your personal computer your lower back will become stressed causing your muscles or ligaments to stretch and ultimately leading you to microscopic tears. Adding to this, the constant stress on your muscles will lead to chronic muscle strain and other soft tissue problems landing you to chronic back pain.

Whether at work, at home, or in some other gathering, if you are suffering from such pain then you will definitely be unable to continue your day with the utmost fervour or enthusiasm. If this is the case do not force yourself to continue on with your routine, instead opt for some steps that will relieve your pain to a greater extent.

Here are the Tips That must Be Followed:

Correct Your posture

Focus on your posture, the way you sit, the way you stand, the manner in which you are performing some activity etc. This is the main thing that needs to be considered, because if you follow a poor posture then it can lead you to degenerated disc condition that is indeed very painful. If your work involves working for hours sitting then make a promise with yourself to take a break for a while and stretch yourself.

While Lifting Heavy Objects

You will be lead to back pain if you are not taking care while lifting heavy objects. Stand close to the object you are lifting so that there is less stress on your back.


Try to perform low impact cardiovascular exercises as these will increase the blood flow to the spine, thus supplying the body requisite healing nutrients for the protection of your lower back.

Your overall Physical Health

As you know that the spine is the most important part in your body, in not only providing you support but also making you completely fit and healthy. To ensure that you are away from the risk of back pain make sure that you drink lots of water, take an anti-inflammatory diet and avoid any alcohol containing stuff.
