How to Protect your Back When Lifting Heavy Objects

A common problem that occurs when lifting heavy objects is rupturing and herniating your disk. Your lower back can get hurt the most. When you bend over to pick up an object, you put a lot of pressure on your lower back. An alternative to bending over is to squat in front of the object and slowly pick it up. Try to keep your back straight when picking up the object. If you pick up an object and hurt your back, call Montesano Spine and Sport right away to schedule an appointment.
