Back pain will result from bad posture, lack of exercise, genetics, the repetitive use and constant abuse of the spine, and a little bit of bad luck. We cannot reverse the use and abuse your spine received in previous years, but we can correct it. Genetics and bad luck is intrinsic to you, but we can modify the way our spine degenerates. This can be done by changing our body posture and exercising the right way. We should be able to reduce the intensity and frequency of back pain by modifying your life style and recommending the right set of exercises. Spine surgery should be the last resource to treat your back.
