Lightweight Lifting Can Hurt Back, Too
It's easy to understand how you could get a back injury from trying to lift a piano or a buffalo - but less obvious efforts also can cause painful and disabling back injuries.
When you lift or carry an object close to your body, your legs support much of the weight. However, when you lean over to pick up or set down an item, more of the load is transferred to your spinal column, muscles and the connective tissues of your back. They can only handle so much and if they are over-taxed, something has to give way. The result of over-reaching and twisting can be stretches and tears in the soft tissue.
Such a back injury can occur suddenly, but it is more likely to be caused by repeated stresses to the back over a period of time. Using safe lifting techniques and other back care practices can help prevent these injuries.
Don't take a wrong turn and cause a back injury. Avoid over-reaching and twisting.
