Health Tip: Prevent Back Pain at Work

(HealthDay News) -- Chronic back pain makes it more difficult to do your job, whether you're behind a desk or operating heavy machinery.

The Mayo Clinic suggests how to avoid back pain at work:

  • Maintain good posture.

  • Lift with your legs and tighten your core muscles, and avoid twisting.

  • When possible, use a lifting device.

  • Alternate physically demanding tasks with less demanding ones.

  • Limit the time you spend carrying heavy briefcases, purses or bags.

  • Listen to your body. Change your position often and periodically walk around and stretch your muscles.
