You always hear a lot of talk about breast implants in women, but rarely do you hear talk about breast reductions. Sometimes, though, back pain can be lessened in women with large breasts if they get reductions. Very large breasts place a great deal of strain on your back's muscles, which can be very painful. Unfortunately, many women who choose to get breast augmentation find this fact out the hard way. To avoid further injury to a healing back, avoid activities, which will add additional strain to the back. Shoveling snow or lifting heavy bags or boxes, for example, are everyday activities you should not engage in until your back is healed. If not, you may end up re-injuring the area before it has even had a chance to heal itself.
