Bending and lifting with your legs avoids bending and straining to lift with your back.
As we are our muscles and ligaments become less flexible with the disks that act as a cushion between the bones of our spine and they become more brittle as we age. All of these things makes us more prone to having back injury as we grow older.
Through not bending and lifting correctly, injury can occur to your muscles, ligaments, or even the disks in your spine.
Taking care of your health by preventative measures is always the best course of action. If you find yourself in discomfort please make an appointment with Mary Anne Lowery Chiropractor to discuss what assistance can be offered to you.
