Topic Using Movement to Decrease Low Back Strain Risk
The spine is meant to bend and twist. It’s actually very resilient when used and moved properly, but we often preach to lock it down in order to protect it. Material handling, imbalanced tool belts, and heavy, awkward lifting is commonplace for many blue collar industries. Unfortunately, so are low back strains. Providing back safety education that includes movement based prevention will lower the risk of injury, and in the case of an injury, decrease the time it takes to get back to usual work.
