Back pain is a prevalent medical condition in the U.S. that most people will encounter at some point. Fortunately, there are preventable causes of back pain:

3- Don't Stop Moving: Because we sit for the majority of the day, we're probably not moving enough. Unfortunately, the most common recommendation patients with lower back pain symptoms receive from their doctor is to ice, rest, and take a pain killer. This just contributes to our sedentary lifestyle, and sedentary lifestyles frequently result in low back discomfort. While this is appropriate during the acute inflammatory stage of care, it is not sufficient to help ease chronic symptoms. 

Low-impact activities such as walking, elliptical use, and swimming increase blood flow to back muscles while alleviating pain and stiffness and strengthening your low back.

4- Being overweight increases the risk of back pain. Studies have shown that overweight individuals do not respond as well to treatment for back pain due to higher inflammation levels in their bodies. If you have excess body fat, your main goal should be to lose it in order to alleviate chronic back pain symptoms.

If you are experiencing persistent back pain, it may be beneficial to consult a back pain chiropractor at Arrowhead Clinics.
