Dealing with back pain as a pet owner [Video]

Your pets can be an immense source of joy in your life. In many ways, they offer therapeutic companionship that can take us away from our sadness and pain. However, there are some ways that our pets can cause our pain, too.

Going for walks is a blast for your dog, but a duty for you. If you’re not careful, it could turn into a source of back pain as well. Wear proper footwear when you go out for a walk, and don’t hold the leash with too much tension.

Also, be careful when you’re bending over to pet or pick up your furry friend. Make sure you’re using proper form. Bend at your knees, not your back, so you can keep your spine straight.
