Are there things I can do on a day-to-day basis to kep my back healthy?
"Back pain is so common that many people will just have an occaisonal episode, but if you lead a healthy life – good nutrition, a good exercise program and working in an environment that is safe, where you're lifting and bending appropriately, you'll lessen your chance of having back pain. Avoidance of smoking also reduces the incidence of back and neck problems. But as you can see, it is so common that it can be difficult to be engaged in a program where you never have trouble with your back."
