According to research, about 80% of the population will experience back pain problem at some time in their lives. This pain usually gets better with a little bit of rest, but for some, it may become an annoying recurring condition.

However, there so many lifestyle changes you can make to minimize back pain, prevent its recurrence and speed recovery if you experience back pain. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the things you need to know about back pains.

Who Gets Back Pain?

Back pain can affect anyone. In fact, a few traits are linked to a higher risk. People with poor fitness levels and sedentary lifestyle and People who are overweight or obese have higher rates of back pain. Older adults (over 30 years) are more likely to experience back pains.

Physically work that involves a lot of lifting, pulling or pushing creates a higher risk of back pains. Other occupational risks include extending sitting, poor posture, and even mentally stressful work. Smoking is also another potential risk that might not be so obvious.

How Do I Prevent Back Pain?

Making some positive lifestyle changes can help you heal and maintain a healthy, pain-free back for a long time. Here are a few lifestyle changes that can help you find relief.

  • Avoid prolonged sitting.

  • Get enough sleep each day.

  • When you sit, maintain good posture.

  • Choose footwear that supports good posture.

  • Quit smoking to encourage better back health.

  • Visit your health care clinician if you have depressed.

  • When you hit the bed at night, try sleeping on your back.

  • Avoid positions where you vibrate your spine for long periods.

  • Workout regularly to keep your back muscles fit and flexible.

  • Eat healthfully so that you can keep healthy body weight.

Treatment Options for Back Pain

If you suffer from back pain, some of the treatments may include:

  • Massage Therapy: This option involves the use of varying degrees of movements and pressure to loosen and heal aching muscles. Massage therapy works best to treat back pain, stress, and circulation problems.

  • Chiropractic Care: This technique can handle everyday wear and tear. It involves treating problems in your joints and tissue using different hands-on procedures to relieve patients of their pain. 

  • Acupuncture: This traditional Chinese technique restores natural body energy. The procedure involves specialist inserting thin needles into exact points throughout your body. Some experts believe acupuncture can clear blockages in the body, which is known as Qi.

  • Surgery: When other treatments aren’t effective, surgery is one of the last resorts your doctor may prescribe to help relieve back pain. Although, over 95 percent of back problems are treated without surgery.
