Whilst our bodies are well adapted to perform a variety of tasks, we always need to be mindful that there are limits and we need to be careful not to take advantage of this and overdo it.
Unfortunately it is only too common that our experienced team of chiropractors at City Chiropractic in Stoke on Trent treat patients who have unfortunately ‘over done it’ and ended up in pain. Often lifting and carrying can be cited by our patients as being the ’cause’ of their problem.
This is a time of year when many of us are turning our attention to gardening, decorating or DIY, all of which can involve a great deal of lifting and carrying. Therefore, Our chiropractor thought it would be a good time to take the opportunity to share a video to help keep your back safe when you are lifting and carrying.
The video below was created by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and gives step by step instructions to keep your back safe when lifting and carrying.
