This is an article that would prove to be an eye opener for certain people that are pretty careless with their lives in what they are going through at the moment because the future looks bleak in the healthcare sector as Covid-19 has brought economy to a standstill.

However, this writing is not about economy downfall or Covid-19 but how ailments have been a part of lives since time immemorial and now in the modern age of 21st century, things have gone from bad to worse.

We shall not get into diseases because back pain does not necessarily qualify as one but can be categorized as an ailment that many people are grappling with where in the old times it used to be senior citizens but today, even youngsters are falling victim to it.


If a layman is asked to define back pain, he would say it is basically a pain in the back that is difficult to handle but in fact there is more to it than what meets the eye because back pain does not spring up on anybody that it takes a fancy to.

For one thing, human beings are quite lethargic by nature as they don’t like moving their body around very much especially young folks that are allergic to physical labor as they consider it beneath them.

The easiest way to put your body to rest is to lie down but if forced to work you can either stay put in one place or sit with your legs spread out wide on your bed where you can keep a pillow behind to support your back and this is where the problem starts.

Back pain means that there is a spinal or nerve disorder that is caused when immense pressure is applied on that area where you sit in the same position and posture for a longer period of time.

Another reason is when you wear high heel shoes or sandals that put pressure on the back and the spinal curvature changes as the muscles become strained, which is seen in ladies that wear them as a fashion statement on a regular basis.

Other issues is engaging in bad habits like smoking that causes tissues to disintegrate slowly and oxygen is blocked by nicotine and it slowly spreads to the spinal disc that results in chronic back pain.

Good Habits

If you shed the aforementioned bad habits and adopt good ones, you will find back pain eradicated in no time where you can start with getting up early and performing yoga where regular stretches would help the back in a great way and back to life reviews online would be of invaluable help.

Never hunch your shoulders while walking or sitting as that would aggravate the issue further so first buy a back posture belt that would help you in keeping the back straight.

Regular exercising on weekdays for an hour can work wonders but first you need to quit smoking and adopt a healthy diet plan with cardio and weight training in equal measure.
