The most common cause for back pain are muscular tensions. Amongst others, they occur due to malpositions, too long sitting, or improper bedding content. But, stress also is a trigger for pain in the lower back.
How to prevent from back pain
To prevent back pain it is important to strengthen and to relieve the musculature and to avoid malpositions. This can be reached with the following:
Ergonomic office furniture: A poor position at your working place often not only leads to back pain. Tensions in the neck and shoulders are common consequences, too. This makes it especially important to furnish your working place “back friendly”. Your back is optimally supported in a chair with armrests, adjustable seat and backrest. Furthermore, your desk should be height-adjustable. This enables an individual adjustment and working in a standing position. But, not only your furniture is important. Make sure, that you are sitting dynamically. Sitting dynamically means to often change into different body positions while sitting. This relieves your musculature and prevents tensions.
Exercise and sports: Strengthen your muscles with regular exercise and especially with back friendly sports like yoga, backstroke swimming, dancing or cycling. This keeps you fit and cares for more well-being.
Stress reduction: Stress and inner tensions are further back pain triggers. Try to relax after a stressful working day and to reduce stress. Here, too, moderate sport is helpful. Or try relaxation techniques like yoga or autogenous training.
Proper bedding content: Not only malpositions during the day can cause back pain. Malpositions during the night are possible, too. Is your body improperly bedded it leads to inconvenient back pain. The proper orthopedic sleep system relieves your musculature and supports your back at the same time. Therefore, your sleeping underlay should be flexible. Thus, when lying, your spine can take the same posture like when standing. The use of an orthopedic pillow additionally supports your cervical spine.
