Tips for a healthy back

Keep moving, even when you have pain

Most of the back pain is mechanical in nature, and is likely to decrease with gentle movements, stretching, and walking. Although it may be tempting to stay in bed when you are in pain, remember that you will likely feel better by getting up, moving and walking gently.

Maintaining a healthy diet

Try to maintain a healthy diet and a healthy weight, as being overweight can affect your back.

Stay hydrated

The average adult lifespan is around 60%, so staying hydrated is beneficial for all aspects of health. In general, an adult should drink half of the body weight in ounces every day. For example, if you weigh 180 lbs. You should drink 90 ounces of water daily.

Get regular sleep

Make sure you get a good night’s rest regularly – your spine needs rest too. Tablets in your spine hydrate when lying down.

See your doctor

Make an appointment to see your doctor for gradually getting worse back pain, and back pain is no better or worse after changing positions and activities.
