Back pain can be a terribly annoying and at times even debilitating problem. Doctors Health Press reported on Sept. that back pain is not a joke. This problem affects millions of people and may greatly undermine your quality of life.

Whether back pain is short term and severe or a chronic problem it may dramatically slow you down and make your life very hard. There are however ways to decrease your risk of back pain while even helping to eliminate any back pain which you already have. Consider that when you lift objects you should bend your knees and lift with your legs.

Exercise also helps to prevent back pain. A back which is strong shows more resistance to wear and tear and potential injury. Also, regular exercise decreases muscle tension and limits inflammation. It is therefore worth remembering if you hurt your back a lot a good thing to do is to work it out.

It is also important to pay attention to your posture and positioning to help prevent back pain. Consider if you spend a lot of time sitting when you are at work it is very important to have the proper chair. Your chair should have a very supportive back, particularly for your lower back. It has also been suggested that it’s a good idea to keep your knees slightly higher than your hips.

WebMD reports a good alternative treatment for back pain is massage. A new study has suggested that massage is better than acupuncture and self-care for back pain. More than one therapeutic intervention is often suggested for back pain. Therapeutic massage should be given consideration in any multidimensional approach to dealing with back pain.
