Hi ..... You may be able to avoid back pain or prevent its recurrence by improving your physical condition and learning and practicing proper body mechanics. Exercise. Regular low-impact aerobic activities — those that don't strain your back — can increase strength and endurance in your back and allow your muscles to function better..... Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight strains back muscles. If you're overweight, trimming down can prevent back pain.....
