Back pain can have causes that aren't due to underlying diseases. Examples include overuse such as working out or lifting too much, prolonged sitting and lying down, sleeping in an uncomfortable position, or wearing a poorly fitting backpack.

Get the right lumbar support
Pay attention to posture
Balance your weight evenly on your feet when you are standing
Eat a healthy diet
Make time for physical activity
Listen to your body
Sitting and standing with proper alignment improves blood flow, helps keep your nerves and blood vessels healthy, and supports your muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
