Keeping Your Back Healthy
  Everyday Care
Good posture is important for a healthy back. Practice standing and sitting up straight so it becomes a habit.
  Body Mechanics for Back Safety
When you lift, bend from the knees, not the waist, and use your legs, not your back, for support.
  Exercises for Strength and Flexibility
Stretching and strengthening exercises can help you avoid back pain. Just be sure to check with your doctor before you start.
