So, does anybody have any advice on improving the condition of my back? I'm only 20 years old and I feel like I have the back pains of somebody at least twice my age.
When I was younger, my dad always told me that there was one thing that you should have when you retire: A healthy back. The reason that he told me this is because it is so easy to mess up your back and become bed ridden for the rest of your life.
I feel as though I'm starting down a path of chronic back problems and I'd like to avoid that at all costs. When I joined the gym recently, I cited one of my goals as being improving my back. I want to be able to live my day to day life without the pain that I usually suffer from. Even when not doing strenuous activities I sometimes have problems.
I really don't know what to do. I plan on working in an industrial background when I finish school, and that can only further increase the strain on my back.
I'm going to make a trip to the doctor sometime in the future to see if I've done any damge to my back or if something is up...
Any advice in the meantime is welcomed.
