Prevention is always better than cure
Modern lifestyles and advances in technologies put an ever-increasing demand on our backs and necks. By following just a few simple rules you can help prevent back pain and the BCA offers the following advice:
Keep active! Every 20-30 minutes, walk around, change position and give your eyes and back a rest.
Don’t slouch in your seat. Make sure you sit upright in your chair.
Walk more. Take the stairs, leave the car/bus at home for short journeys; get active!
Drink more water. Limit your caffeine intake. Keep your body and brain hydrated and more alert from drinking water.
