Dr. Oz's Back Pain Prevention Checklist

Back pain is one of the leading causes for doctor visits in the United States, and experts predict that a staggering 80% of Americans will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Dr. Oz has 3 tips designed to help you stop pain before it starts.

Dr. Oz's Back Pain Prevention Checklist

The most common causes of back pain are weight gain and bad health habits, like inactivity and smoking. Weight adds mores force across the body’s joints and muscles. This can, in turn, throw off spinal alignment resulting in problems like bulging discs, muscle strain and osteoarthritis. Lack of exercise and smoking can both cause accelerated disc degeneration and increased pain. If you’re currently a smoker, do the best thing for your overall health and quit. Follow Dr. Oz’s Kick the Habit Plan, a gradual and supportive process that will have you smoke-free in 6 months.

Dr. Oz’s Daily Back Pain Prevention Checklist


  1. Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. This allows your body the time it needs to repair itself. Find the best sleep position for you!
  2. Stretch for 10 minutes each morning. Try touching your toes from a standing position, or seated with your legs at a 90 degree angle to your body. This will help loosen tense muscles. Watch Dr. Oz’s Beginner Yoga workout here. It has moves designed to strengthen and stretch your back, both of which will help to prevent back pain.
  3. Watch out for weight gain. Added weight means added pressure to your lower back which leads to increased back pain. Follow Dr. Oz’s Ultimate Diet and reboot your system in just 2 weeks. Rethink the kinds and quantity of foods you eat to keep unwanted weight gain at bay.
