How to Solve Your Back Pain Problem in 60 Seconds
Nearly everyone will suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives. Most back pain is transitory and will eventually go away. Knowing what initiates pain can help avoid future pain. Muscle spasm and strain are the most common soft tissue injuries to the back. In order to help avoid pain in the first place, do not bend at the waist, but use your legs to help lift heavy objects. Do not bend and twist; first lift with legs, then move feet to face intended direction.
