Many people will tell you that the key to steering clear of bad backs is to purchase yourself one of the high end posture brace items that so many companies are now offering up at bargain basement prices. I am here to tell that they could not be further from the truth.
Those items are handy for people who are already suffering and to help them on the way to back pain freedom, but they should not be used to prevent bad backs, you should be working on your bad posture first! You cannot always palm off the difficult things in life that are too hard for you and there are certainly no quick fixes in life. Take your health and well being into your own hands and do something about it.
I have just purchased myself a kneeling chair to ensure that any time I spend in front of my home computer (and I spend a lot of time at it, so it worked out beneficial for me to spend the money on it), I would not be compromising my own wellbeing and health.
You need to do the hard work for yourself, not because somebody tells you to but because you should care about whether you end up with a hunchback later on in life or whether, when your children have their own children, you can actually enjoy them and playing with them (which inevitably, ends up running around after them!).
Let’s get serious about bad backs and start showing our bodies we care!
