Golfers lift

Safe lifting techniques  are an important way to avoid low back injuries.

Many injuries occur when we bend at the waist , this greatly increases the pressure within the disc and loads on the muscles, ligaments and joints in the low back.  There are  alternatives when it comes to the way we lift and move which are bio-mechanically safer and will help prevent low back pain.  Of course it is always safer to bend at the knees and not at the waist.  For heavier objects using a squat or one knee on the ground lift is a safer option.  For lighter objects try a golfers lift which is safe, effective and an easy habit to form.
