Core strengthening: Stay in shape, especially your abdomen and the muscles of your low back. Do not focus on crunches exclusively - movements with a rotational component are also important. Learn to lift from your knees.
Despite all of that, some things happen that are outside of your control.

Any body with bad: Working habits.The risk of lower back pain is equal in every adult who overworks their body, regardless of age or color, and regardless of the fact that the person is a healthy man or woman.
The people who are most likely to have lower back pain are those who have poor working conditions, like standing up for prolonged periods of time, sitting for hours together in front of a computer etc.

Good seat back: The best would be one that has a cushion for the lower back to maintain the normal curvature of the lower back.
