Health Tip: Take Back Strain Out of Work

Low Back Pain Relief

(HealthDay News) -- Back pain can hinder your projects at work, but you can take a few steps to help minimize the problem.

The American Council on Exercise offers this advice:

  • Take frequent walking and stretch breaks, and avoid sitting for long periods.
  • Place a pillow, towel or seat support behind your lower back.
  • Practice good posture while sitting at your desk.
  • Adjust your desk so your computer is within easy reach.
  • Get regular exercise, eat healthy and don't smoke.
