Clean with Care to Spare Yourself from Back Pain
With the spring season here, everyone has one thing on his or her mind, SPRING CLEANING! What many people may not realize is that lower back injuries are extremely common during this time due to all the reaching and bending involved with cleaning. Activities such as, vacuuming rugs, cleaning floors, yard work, and lifting heavy objects, can all lead to a risk of lower back strain/injury. But cleaning shouldn’t be back breaking!
Prevention is Key
There are a few ways you can prevent unwanted lower back problems this spring. When lifting heavy boxes, bend your knees rather then your waist. You want your legs to do most of work while performing this task. This will take all the pressure and strain off your lower back.
