The expert staff at the EvergreenHealth Neuroscience, Spine & Orthopedic Institute offers these tips to help manage and alleviate the back pain you may be experiencing.

  • Remain active (under the supervision of your physician) including appropriate exercise for your age and health status.
  • Warm up before exercising or other physical activities, especially after prolonged sitting.
  • Avoid prolonged inactivity or bed rest.
  • Maintain proper posture.
  • If you work in an office, make sure that you have an ergonomic working environment, and minimize prolonged sitting.
