As we get older things start to hurt. First it may be your knees. Oh and then you pulled a muscle in your back. Things just hurt. They just do. Whether it is our muscles, our joints, our necks or even our whole bodies. It is a thing.

What is the number one pain a lot of us have? It is definitely our back. Just some times getting out of bed can be the culprit. Just an easy task like that.

Here are some things we need to work on and things we need to  try to avoid so we can help our pains hurt a little less.

Be aware when you are lifting something heavy or even moving a bunch of stuff. Move with your legs and not your back.

Did you know that sitting too much can help cause you pains in your back. So you need to work on getting up and moving every hour. You can also hurt your back just by bending over.

If you can go out and buy a new mattress that can help your back a lot. A bad mattress is a major cause of pain. That is why sometimes getting out of bed can just hurt you. It can all be in how you slept the night before in a not so great mattress.

Anything you do that exerts too much movement in your back that hurt you. That includes carrying groceries, driving or even walking up and down the stairs.

So be aware of what you are doing and how you are doing it. Help keep that back pain away.
