Several ways if back: You must be proactive in terms of lifestyle changes including: weight control, regular exercising ; not smoking. Make sure to have adequate sleep ; good vitamin d/calcium intake. Most people remain functional without spine surgery for back pain. You may need additional treatment that may include physical rherapy, medication as well as possible pain management techniques. Back support can help.
