Avoiding Lower Back Pain in Teens




Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, gives some tips to teens so they can protect themselves from lower back pain.

One of them is trying to not carry heavy backpacks for school, because it is bad for posture. Instead they can try using rolling suitcases. They also have to improve their posture, because posture is the key for preventing back issues.

Women that carry heavy purses in only one side of the body should search a better way to carry the purses or try not to take so many things with them.
