Health Tip of The Week: Protect the Lower Back When Lifting

Using appropriate lifting techniques will help prevent a lower back injury. Lift heavy items slowly, breaking the motion into smaller parts, whenever possible. For example, if you must lift a heavy box from the floor to a high shelf, find a support midway. Then rest the box there for a moment before hoisting it onto the shelf. When lifting, bend at the knees, not at the lower back. If you must turn while lifting, pivot with the feet, instead of twisting the lower back.
