We have a habit of keeping our feet glued to the floor and moving our back/spine to do the task. It is much better if you keep the back/spine aligned and use your feet to move your body – think about how you twist and reach for an object – I bet you don’t move your feet!
When lifting, if you can, make sure that you have a wide legged stance and squat to pick up the item. If necessary get someone to help you. We hope that you remain injury free, but we are here to help if you pull a muscle, tweak your back or neck or find that getting out of your chair or bed in the morning is now difficult.
Of course we are here to help if you do suffer a strain or injury.
