Protect your Back, Choices you make every day can help you prevent back pain. Just by lifting objects correctly, sitting properly in a chair at work, and seeking early treatment are all the steps you can take to protect your back. You can do a lot to prevent back pain from happening to you. Paying attention to ergonomics and understanding how your body fits and moves with and around furnishings such as desks and chairs at home and work is important, just like taking care of your body on a daily basis. Use caution when exercising or engaging in other physical activities, such as raking leaves, shoveling snow, and moving boxes. However fit you may feel don’t get to rushed to complete a task, pushing your body to do just one more thing when you are starting to feel fatigued can also result in back pain. Take a break! I promise it’ll still be there when you get back.
Lift Objects the Right Way
- Hold objects properly. When holding the item you have, be sure to just pick it up squarely in front of and close to you, with your knees slightly bent for balance.
- No twisting! Just as you can hurt yourself if you twist while lifting an object, you can cause back pain if you twist your body to move the item you just picked up. If you need to move an item from one side of you to another, do not twist to do so. Instead, move your feet and then slowly turn your entire body to face that direction, then put the object down.
- Use your legs. Bend at the knees into a semi crouch position with your back straight, then grasp the object you want to lift and use your leg muscles to lift straight up. Keep your torso and head facing forward. Many people bend over at the waist and try to use their arms or backs to lift an item, leading to back pain. Be sure to use your legs if you need to put the item back down again.
- Get help. If an object seems like it would be just too heavy or bulky for you to safely lift alone or you’re getting tired, ask for help before you try. It’s always good to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to back pain.
Adjust Your Driving Posture
Sitting improperly in the car can hurt your back. You can prevent back pain while driving and riding as a passenger by:
- Sitting correctly. Adjust your car seat so that you have proper lower back support (or place a rolled towel or pillow behind your back) and your legs are slightly raised. Face forward.
- Use your seatbelt. Seatbelts prevent back injury, even in a minor wreck. Make sure you wear your seatbelt properly, with the lap and chest belts fitting snugly across your body. Pregnant women should make sure the lap belt fits perfectly under their bellies. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that more than 40,000 nonfatal injuries (including back injuries) could be prevented each year if nearly all adults wore their seat belts when driving.
Change the Way You Sit in a Chair
Many people spend all day sitting at a desk and in their cars, and they can develop back pain because they aren’t sitting correctly. These tips can help you get more out of your chair

- Straighten your head and shoulders. Keep your head and shoulders upright and facing straight ahead, Limit the amount of twisting and turning around that you do from your chair.
- Support your feet. If you are going to sit for a while, use a footrest. it actually works wonders.
- Lower or raise your desk. Keep your desk or keyboard at the correct height and distance from your body, so that you are not forced to lean forward.
- Support the lower back. You will need some support for your lower back. Desk chairs designed with ergonomics in mind often have lower back support built in, otherwise you can use a rolled up towel, jacket, or pillow.
