All of us will be required to pick up and move a heavy object at some stage during our lives. Unfortunately very few of us know how to do this in a safe manner in order to prevent injury to the back and the subsequent back pain....

Below are some useful tips on how to protect yourself during the lifting and/or carrying process and reducing your chances of suffering from back pain.

Step 1:

Make sure you stand as close as possible to the object that you want to lift. Spread your feet so that they are the same width as your shoulders. Next, tighten your abdominal muscles.

Step 2:

While keeping your back as straight as possible, lower yourself into a squatting position in order to reach the object. Place your feet as close to the object as possible and make sure that you have a good grip.

Step 3:

Lift the object very slowly and ensure that it is not too heavy for you to carry. Keep the load as close to the body as possible and stand up while keeping the back straight.
