Disabling back or neck pains can occur at any age. Our bodies can be hurt
in the course of normal daily activities or while we're performing
apparently beneficial activities, such as exercising.
Some things we can do to provide maximum protection for our backs and
necks include: Choose exercise based on personal characteristics and past
medical history. Avoid doing unfamiliar household or work activities to
excess (e.g. strenuous gardening, moving heavy furniture). While involved
in exercise or activity, pay attention to warning signs such as pain,
and be prepared to discontinue the effort and rest. See a physician if
experiencing severe or prolonged back or neck pain.
