Lift Correctly by Dr. Carlos M Gonzalez, DC in El Paso, Texas

HEALTH TIP #920 Lift with your legs NOT you back! Especially when lifting boxes or anything that is heavy. But I’ve had patients bend over to lift something very light but because they bent over the wrong way they hurt their spine. Repeated bending the wrong way stretches the ligaments that hold the spine tightly and start to stretch and give way causing the spine to misalign and cause PAIN! Practice, practice, practice. Catch yourself bending or lifting the wrong way and CORRECT IT! Your spine and back muscles will LOVE YOU!
