Why do we suffer from pain from sitting to long? Watch this video anatomy.

Here’s a list of things that can reduce your risk of developing back pain or impairment over time:

  1. Maintain Good Posture: Ensure proper alignment when sitting, standing, and walking.
  2. Regular Exercise: Engage in activities that strengthen the back and core muscles, such as swimming, walking, or specific back exercises.
  3. Lift Properly: Use your legs to lift heavy objects, not your back. Keep the object close to your body and avoid twisting.
  4. Healthy Weight: Maintain a healthy weight to reduce strain on your back.
  5. Ergonomic Workspace: Ensure that your workstation is set up to promote good posture, with a chair that supports your lower back.
  6. Stretch Regularly: Incorporate stretching exercises into your routine to maintain flexibility.
  7. Stay Hydrated: Proper hydration helps maintain the elasticity and health of soft tissues.
  8. Quit Smoking: Smoking reduces blood flow to the spine and increases the risk of spinal disc degeneration.
  9. Wear Supportive Shoes: Choose shoes that provide good arch support and cushioning.
  10. Avoid Prolonged Sitting or Standing: Take breaks to move around if you need to sit or stand for long periods.
  11. Use Proper Mattresses and Pillows: Ensure your sleeping surface supports your spine properly.
  12. Manage Stress: Stress can cause muscle tension, leading to back pain. Practice stress-reducing techniques like meditation or yoga.
  13. Nutrition: Eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals to support bone health.
  14. Use Back Support: Use lumbar support while driving or sitting for extended periods.
  15. Avoid High-Impact Activities: Activities like running on hard surfaces can put excessive strain on your back.
  16. Listen to Your Body: Don’t ignore back pain; seek medical advice if you experience persistent discomfort.

By incorporating these practices into your daily life, you can significantly reduce the risk of developing back pain or impairment over time.
