Do you notice that you have issues when you bend forward? Or is it more when bend backward? Or maybe it happens when you bend or turn to one side or the other. In most cases back discomfort can be connected with a specific type of movement.

If you can figure out what movements do and do not cause discomfort, you’ll be able to overcome this issue a lot faster

Try moving more with your hips when you need to bend forward and not from your back. Or bring your foot up to a chair when you need to tie your shoes so you can avoid recreating the discomfort. If you have trouble reaching overhead, use a step stool so you won’t have to.

Making these simple changes can be a huge help and allow you to do many of your normal everyday activities without experiencing discomfort in your back.

3.  Keep moving!
