Preventing Back Problems

Alexandra Turcios, Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner with Baptist Health Neuroscience Center believes it is important for back health to start taking care at a young age. This includes healthy weight and doing exercises. When the pain starts becoming worse and home care is not enough, It's time to visit a doctor. Resting, taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatories and putting iced packs in the lower back can help, but if they don't, It's important to see a physician.
