I am going to teach you a few simple techniques that you can use to avoid and reduce back injury.
At home or at work, whether you are a delivery person or work in a warehouse and your job it is to lift heavy things every day, or just picking up something simple at home, you can injure your back if you don’t pick up the object correctly. Let me tell you how to avoid back injury and avoid ending up withback pain treatment.
There are two things you need to know to avoid back pain and stay away from it for the rest of your life.
The first thing to remember is to use the correct muscle group when lifting things. You can avoid back pain treatment if you follow a simple rule and that is, use the muscles of your legs and buttock to lift. Do not use your back muscles to lift anything from the ground or wherever you need to lift it up from.
Go to the object that needs to be lifted, bend your knees to bring yourself down to the object, keep your back straight and your upper body vertical and make sure you are not bent over the object. This way you give your spine a solid foundation and reduce stress on it. Bending over the object to be lifted causes the spine to be horizontal, putting enormous pressure on it, which pretty soon can lead to a slip disc or a sprain. You could,unknowingly, be putting hundreds of pounds of pressure on your back when you bend over an object.
Be as close to the object you want to lift as you can. If you remember to do this, you will be easing the pressure on your back a whole lot more than if you try to lift it from a hand span away. You should, ideally, be about eight inches away from the object, with your back vertical and not bent over the box or object. Use those leg and knee muscles to lift the object and this way avoid straining your back. Avoid a twisting movement as you lift to avoid further strain to your back.
You will be astonished to realize the amount of pressure you put on your back when you lift an object at arm’s length. You exert one hundred and fifty pounds of pressure on your back when you lift even a ten pound object by stretching out you arms. If you were lifting an eighty eight pound object it’s a whopping seven hundred pounds to your back if you lift it at arm’s length. Now do you understand why some people spend a bundle of money on back pain treatment? It’s all in following these two simple rules to live a better life.
If you remember to follow these two simple rules whenever you lift something, you can avoid back injury for a lifetime. Never have to have back pain treatment by following my two simple rules.
