You can take several precautions to prevent future disc damage and pain associated with it. For example:
- Get regular chiropractic adjustments
- Avoid improper lifting techniques
- Practice good posture
- Exercise and stretch regularly
- Maintain a healthy body weight
Avoid lifting heavy objects with improper form to prevent unnecessary stress and strain on your back. Regular strengthening exercises help improve posture, and keep your weight within a healthy range to reduce your risk of disc damage.
