Banish Back Pain

 

Anyone can have back pain, but those who are overweight, have poor posture, aren’t physically active, or suffer from certain health conditions like arthritis are more susceptible. You are also more likely to get back pain as you get older. Back pain is classified as either acute or chronic, depending on how long it lasts. The good news is that most back pain can be treated without surgery. Addressing the variables that are in your control, such as posture, practicing proper lifting techniques, targeted strength training, and getting plenty of calcium, can go a long way to preventing back pain.
