Tips for Proper Lifting from Your Chiropractor
4 tips to help you lift properly and help prevent back injury from your HealthSource Chiropractic Office:
- Avoid twisting. Instead step into the turn.
- Push item when it is too heavy rather than pulling and whenever possible, use your legs, not your back. Bend your knees, squat or place one knee on ground and lift up slowly.
- Take breaks when you feel tired.
- Grab a buddy to help!
