Injuries sustained from lifting heavy objects improperly are commonly treated in the realm of chiropractic.

Using the wrong muscles when lifting an object can place strain on joints that are not meant to bear that degree of weight.

To prevent stress injuries due to lifting a heavy object improperly, consider the following tips:

  • Keep your feet shoulder width apart.
  • If lifting from the floor, keep your spine straight and lift with your legs rather than the muscles in your lower back. Do not lift by bending forward.
  • Keep the object close to your body.
  • Flex your elbows.
  • Keep your head and neck straight while lifting. Use your feet, not your body, to change direction.
  • Never lift an object above shoulder level.
