Precautions to avoid back pain

There are different precautions you can take to avoid back pain.. It is important to see a specialist if you suffer from chronic back pain. In this way, illnesses that can reduce your mobility can be diagnosed and treated in time.

Stretch your back

Before doing any physical activity it is necessary to stretch, warm up. The spine is supported by muscles and tendons: warming up prevents them from straining or distending, the most common causes of common back pain. You can also do some strengthening exercises for your back, even before you experience any symptoms.

Avoid overweight

Overweight and obesity not only generate an additional load on the back, but also on the whole body. This can cause long-term problems, even leading to wear and tear on the vertebrae and invertebral discs. Maintaining an adequate weight helps to avoid these types of complications, in addition to the known health benefits.

Bend your legs

Avoid bending down your body, always try to bend your legs to pick things up from the ground. Sometimes bending incorrectly can cause a pinched nerve or even the pulpy nucleus of the discs to fall out of place, resulting in a herniated disc. Hernias can be extremely painful and even limit mobility.

Eat healthy

In addition to helping you maintain an adequate weight, good nutrition can help keep your spine, invertebral discs and surrounding tissues healthy for a long time. Foods rich in magnesium (rice and quinoa), calcium (fish, dairy products), iron (nuts, chard), etc. are beneficial for back health. Also, to avoid back pain, it is important to avoid alcohol and tobacco, which cause multiple health problems.
