Some tips to Feel Good and Keep Your Back Healthy
It's common to experience back pain. There are many things that can lead to it, including herniated disks and strained muscles. It's important to determine the root cause of your back pain so that you can treat it effectively. You can also learn some things that can be done to improve your back health.
Sit down less and invest in ergonomics
Sitting for too long can cause pain in your spine, back, and neck. Sitting for long periods of time can put more stress on your joints. Consider taking breaks if you work at a desk. Also, ensure that your desk is ergonomically set up.
The right shoes are important
How you feel can be affected by your shoes. Your spine will stay straightened if you choose the right shoes. Running shoes with insoles that are specially made for runners and prescription orthotics are some of the best options.

Get a massage

Get plenty of water
Your body needs to be hydrated. "Intervertebral disks" are largely made up of layers of collagen and proteins along with water. At birth discs were about 80% water. However, being hydrated can help discs stay healthy as you age.
Your back support can be improved by strengthening your core muscles. Core exercises are important because daily activities may not push you to strengthen your core.
