Your muscles are meant to move. Exercise helps keep your joints fluid. Exercise prevents back pain is that exercise helps you keep your weight down — being overweight, especially around your stomach, can put added strain on your back.


A steady diet of excessively spicy or fast food can strain your nervous system, which is going to create back problems. A healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats, dairy products, and whole grains will keep your digestive tract on track. A healthy digestive system will also lead to a healthy spine.


The best sleeping position is sleeping sideways. If you must sleep on your stomach, put a pillow under your lower abdomen to help take stress off your back. Having a supportive mattress and pillow for your head are vital as well.


The best chair for preventing back pain is one with a straight back or low-back support. Keep your knees a bit higher than your hips while seated. If you must stand for a prolonged period, keep your head up and your stomach pulled in.

Smoking can be a cause of persistent back pain. Smoking can make existing back pain worse. Smoking can narrows blood vessels, which will prevent oxygen and nutrients reaching the spine.


High heels can shift your center of gravity and strain your lower back. If you have to go higher, bring along a pair of low-heeled shoes and slip into them if you become uncomfortable.
