Feb 17, 2023 | Chiropractic Care

Bad lifting techniques can lead to a host of musculoskeletal issues, including back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, and other joint problems. The best way to avoid these issues is to use proper lifting techniques.

Chiropractic care can help people with musculoskeletal issues caused by bad lifting techniques. When lifting, it is important to keep your back straight and avoid bending or twisting. The correct form is to keep your back straight and bend your knees at a comfortable angle. It is also important to keep your core muscles engaged and your head in line with your spine. If you are lifting a heavy object, it is also important to use your legs and not your back to lift the object and to lift the object in a controlled manner and avoid jerking motions.

When lifting objects be mindful of the weight of the object you are lifting. If the object is too heavy, it can cause strain on the spine and other musculoskeletal structures. It is best to lift objects that are within your comfort level and to ask for help if needed.

If something can be lifted on your own but you have to travel far distances, it is best to keep the object close to your body and to switch hands or adjust your grip periodically to avoid overworking one side of your body.
