If you have been having back pain and don’t feel like it is improving the way you would like then here are some things that should definitely be avoided to minimize your problem.

This Is A List Of 5 Things That Will Wreck Your Back Worse In 2018.

1. New Year’s Resolutions Involving The Gym:

Many people jump into exercise programs at the beginning of the year that were similar to what they had done in the past and that can be extremely detrimental because your body isn’t accustomed to that amount of exercise. Don’t rush your body expecting it to adapt in the gym as quickly as it has in the past, it could really wreck your back depending on the activity you’re doing..

2. Lifting With Poor Body Mechanics:

New Christmas gifts can be heavy and most likely you have been putting up all our Christmas decorations. If you are lifting something from the ground and you notice that there is significant weight on your toes, then there is probably a lot of pressure on your back.

3. Not Paying Attention With Daily Activities:

A lot of people get hurt doing random things like putting their briefcase or backpack in their car. If you don’t pay attention to the way you move, then you’re likely to make your back worse…

4. Sitting For Long Periods:

if you are sitting at work all day then sitting in the car for long commutes; you are likely going to deal with increased back pain because your discs take on the most stress while sitting and leaning forward. Try to break up long sitting periods with a walk or bathroom break.

5. Sleeping Too Long:

Most of us get more sleep in the winter because it gets dark earlier, stays dark longer and when we wake up it’s cold so we don’t want to get out of bed. This leads to stiffness and long durations where we don’t keep our muscles active. Also, depending on your sleeping position through most of the night it could cause all kinds of different problems in the morning!
