Thank you for taking the time to answer our back pain quiz.

Based on the answers of our back pain quiz, it appears that you do not have persistent signs or symptoms suggestive of chronic back pain. For optimum health, it is suggested that you see your doctor once a year for a full checkup and physical.

Back pain can be prevented. Here are some of the best things you can do to help prevent back pain:

  • Maintain a healthy weight with a balanced diet that includes enough calcium and vitamin D every day to keep your bones strong and healthy.

  • Keep or add an exercise routine that strengthens your back muscles.

  • Try to stand and sit up straight and avoid heavy lifting when you can. If you do lift anything heavy, remember to bend your legs and keep your back straight.

  • The doctors and staff here at Athens Brain & Spine care about our patients and hope that they lead long healthy lives.
