When you lift heavy objects using incorrect form, musculoskeletal injuries can occur. Even simple tasks like moving something from the ground to a higher location like a chair, table, or shelf can cause back or muscle strain.
Bend the knees when standing upright to pick up anything. Do not bend from your waist - That is a simple rule when lifting. Always keep your back straight and allow your arms and shoulder muscles to do the work, not your back.
If you experience any of the above injuries, call (410) 884-0000 and schedule a physical therapy evaluation at our Columbia Maryland clinic so our work injury physical therapy specialists can assess your condition and prescribe the necessary treatments to address your situation.
