Will back pain keep coming back?
Some cases of back pain that are caused by an underlying medical condition may be chronic and recurrent. In other cases, recurrent pain may be avoided by making lifestyle changes such as: maintaining good posture; lifting objects safely; exercising regularly to improve posture and increase muscle support for the spine; eating a healthy diet that helps to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight to ease the strain on the back; taking regular breaks while standing, sitting or driving for long periods, and; adopting effective stress management approaches.
