One of the most common causes of an intolerable back is wrong lifting, especially when lifting something heavy.  All of those folk who have told you to lift with your legs knew what they were talking about.  When picking up something, bend at the knees, take the object you need to pick up in your hands and rise up, letting your legs do most of the work.

And, if you have got to lift something actually heavy, don’t try to do it alone.  Get as many extra people as you need to carry the object comfortably.  Not only will this protect your back, this may forestall plenty of other mishaps, like dropping and damaging a dear item.

When it comes to relieving or avoiding back pain, making some simple lifestyle changes, and taking a few preventative measures, can make all the difference.
