Many cases of back pain can be prevented with good habits for lifting and performing physical activities. Even the most basic activities can be detrimental for the lower back; because these activities are seemingly harmless, their risks can be overlooked and cause injury.
This video talks about how to keep your back healthy by changing the way you move during everyday activities. Any time you lift an item, the intervertebral discs are put under higher pressure from decreased space in the spinal column. As you get older, your spine is weakened, so you should be more aware of how to properly lift items.
