18 pointers to wage your war to stop back pain

This week, we present 18 pointers which will help you to wage your war to stop back pain 

  1. Roughly 8 out of 10 people suffer from back pain at some point during their lives.
  2. Women more prone to posture and back problems because of toting heavy purses, going through pregnancy, or giving one-hip rides to kids
  3. Calcium is key for strong bones
  4. Vitamin K helps calcium deposit in the bones, making them denser.
  5. Vitamin K found in broccoli, spinach, and other dark leafy greens.
  6. The stronger your bones, the stronger your whole body—and the lower your chances of an injury that could cause back pain.
  7. If purse or briefcase tips the scales at more than 10% of your weight, it’s too heavy to carry.
  8. Carry a right model purse with a long strap that lets you position it across your chest like a messenger bag.
  9. Can’t part with your shorter-strapped purse? Switch shoulders every 20 minutes.
  10. While sleeping a harder bed may not be better for your back
  11. People who sleep on softer beds report less lower-back pain than those who sleep on harder ones
  12. Pillows – Yours shouldn’t raise your head out of alignment with your spine.
  13. Pillows – If you’re a back sleeper, your chin shouldn’t press into your chest.
  14. Pillows – If you’re a side sleeper, it shouldn’t curve up toward your shoulder.
  15. Tighten your abs as having strong core muscles can help protect your back from injury
  16. Sitting at a desk for eight (or more) hours a day can really do harm on your back
  17. Aim for good posture – sit with your back against your chair both feet flat on the floor
  18. Try using a stability ball as your desk chair
