Experts estimate that 80% of people experience back pain in their lifetime. It's also one of the most common reasons for missing work. If you are one of the millions of Americans suffering from low back pain, follow these 5 tips to make living with pain more manageable.
Tip #1 Stretch daily:
Stretching increases range of motion and flexibility for improved balance as well as relieving tightness and pain, and helping to prevent injury. Incorporate a foam roller in your routine and gain an added benefit of massage to your daily stretch.
Tip #2 Exercise regularly:
While rest may seem like the better option when pain has set in, only one to two days of rest is recommended. Regular physical activity eases inflammation and muscle tension, thus aiding in reduced back pain. Core exercises are especially helpful as they work to strengthen your core and increase flexibility. A strong core protects your spine.
Tip #3 Keep posture in mind:
Maintaining proper posture throughout the day not only helps prevent low back pain, it also helps improve muscle tone and circulation. Follow this helpful guide to maintaining great posture in different positions.

Tip #4 Proper back support:
Invest in an ergonomic office chair or a lumbar support cushion, such as the Self-Inflating Back Rest. This ensures you have proper lumbar support wherever you are. From your car, to work, to the movies, it’s important to maintain proper support to prevent pain.

Tip #5 Good night’s rest:
When you are not getting enough sleep, pain can often feel worse than usual. If back pain is keeping you up at night, try different sleep positions until you find one that is the most comfortable. A Bed Wedge System provides great lower back support while in bed.
