how to prevent lower back pain?

To maintain back health, it is essential to adopt correct postures and good daily actions. Here are some tips.

The right positions to avoid lower back pain
Low back pain, otherwise known as low back pain, is the term for localized pain in the lower back, precisely in the lower back. This is the most common form of back pain. It can occur at any age, in adolescence as around 45 years of age. Moreover, its causes are varied. In 90% of cases, low back pain is benign or "non-specific." It can be the result of prolonged bad positions. To prevent possible pain, it is advisable to adopt correct postures and good movements.

How long do you work on your computer? Do you drive regularly on long journeys? Do you spend long hours in front of the television? Avoid bending your back or digging it, shoulders slit. It is recommended to place a memory cushion of shape like those of Tempur at the lower back. This accessory can be used anywhere: on a bed, on a sofa, on an office chair, in the car, etc. It provides a straight position to avoid risky movements and positions that may alter the posture of the vertebrae. In addition, it is ideal to keep an alignment between the head, shoulders and pelvis. Also position your legs at a 90-degree angle. Adjust your chair to support your feet on the floor or use a reclining footrest.

When you lie down, your back should not widen, regardless of your position:
  • On the back: Place a cushion under your knees to maintain head-shoulder-basin alignment.
  •     On the belly: Place a cushion under your hips. Note that this position promotes pain in the lower back and neck if prolonged.
  •     On the side: slide a cushion between the hollow of your waist and the mattress. Do the same between your knees, while taking care to fold them slightly.

In case you remain standing, keep an alignment between the nape of the neck, pelvis and heels.
