Many People will soon be putting up holiday decorations in preparation for the winter festivities fast approaching. With all of that potential lifting, baking, and activity, the chance of damaging and experiencing strenuous pain in your back is very likely. One of the most common back related injuries results from a poor lifting technique, which is unfortunate news with Christmas lights, Christmas Trees, and other holiday elements being put up soon. There are a number of preventative measures you can take for alleviating the stress incurred, including area specific exercises that involve strengthening your abs and surrounding muscles.
The proper way to lift something is to bend your knees while keeping your back straight, this reduces the amount of pressure on your back. It is also recommended that you do not lift more than 20% of your body weight unless you have been specifically trained to do so. A doctors consultation is suggested if you are experiencing any abnormal pain, or if the pain continues to progress. Your treatment might include icing, heat, or a back brace. The benefits of using a back brace to recover and prevent further damage are extremely valuable.
