Correct Lifting Posture

Maintaining a correct lifting posture is vital in order for your recovery to be enhanced along with your physiotherapy treatment. Having a correct lifting posture will prevent unwanted strain, pressure and accumulative trauma to affected regions of your muscular, skeletal and neural systems of your body. The most crucial aspect of having a good lifting posture is to maintain a neutral lumbar spinal position of the lower back. It is integral to avoid arching or hunching the lower back. For medium to heavy objects use a squat technique For light objects use a lunge technique As the saying goes, ‘Practice makes Perfect!’ Practice these correct techniques and you will be amazed at how your body will respond!
