6 Bad Habits That Give You Back Pain: Changes To Make For Pain Relief - Medical Daily

Did you know that sitting puts 40% more pressure on your spine than standing? Let’s be honest: Maintaining proper posture is probably the last thing you’re thinking about when under a major work deadline. And on a jam-packed day, regular stretching breaks may not seem like a wise way to spend your time. But skipping these habits may cause your back to suffer. That’s because back muscles will weaken if you don’t use them; inactive joints lose lubrication and age more quickly.

Key Takeaways:

  • A good mattress is imperative for not only a good night's sleep, but also our overall health, including your back.
  • Cell phones make it easier for you to adopt poor habits when it comes to posture. Calling, texting, and emailing on your smartphone can create pressure on your neck, and travel all the way down your back.
  • A 2006 study in Spine found doing heavy household chores like laundry, mopping, washing dishes, or even carrying shopping bags are among the most demanding chores on your back that require you to bend at the waist.

"A good mattress is imperative for not only a good night's sleep, but also our overall health, including your back. Sleeping on a soft mattress can lead the weight on your back to be uneven, and trigger the onset of debilitating back pain."
