5 Tips For Proper Lifting

Lifting heavy objects can be daunting, especially if you’re unsure how to do it safely. Back pain and injury are commonly associated with lifting, but the proper technique can help minimize these problems. Here are our top tips to help you lift safely and avoid injury.

  1. Warm up before lifting
    As with any physical activity, it’s essential to warm up before lifting heavy objects. A few simple stretches can help loosen up your muscles and prepare them for work. Warming up can help reduce the risk of injury and improve your performance.
  2. Use your legs, not your back
    When lifting an object, it’s essential to use the strong muscles in your legs rather than relying on your back. To lift correctly, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and bend your knees to get a good grip on the object you’re lifting. Keep your back straight, then lift by straightening your legs. Check out this Safe Lifting infographic for more details.
  3. Keep the object close to your body
    Another way to avoid straining your back is to keep the object you’re lifting close to your body. This will help distribute the weight more evenly and make lifting easier.
  4. Use the proper grip
    A proper grip can help you avoid injuries to your hands or fingers. One of the best grips for lifting heavy objects is the “Power Grip,” which is when your fingers wrap around the object and your thumb presses against the object.
  5. Take frequent breaks
    Lifting heavy objects can be tiring, so taking short breaks to rest and stretch your muscles is essential to help prevent fatigue and reduce the risk of injury. Also, if an object is too heavy for you to lift alone, it’s best to ask for help or to use a lifting device to get the job done safely.

Following these five tips can help you avoid common lifting injuries. Remember, if you feel pain or discomfort while lifting, stop immediately and rest. And if the pain persists overnight, see us! We’re here to help.

New Year’s Resolutions

Tips for Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

It’s the start of a new year, and you’re eager to hit your resolutions for 2023. While this is a great time to take stock of your current situation, set some goals, and make improvements, it can also be tricky.  There are many distractions and excitements to derail even the best intentions. That is why we’ve put together a few suggestions to help you maintain your resolutions and make 2023 the best year ever!.

Be realistic & patient

While it may be tempting to aim for an ambitious target like losing 50 pounds in two months, this may not be realistic or sustainable. Instead, consider setting a more achievable long-term goal, such as adopting a healthy diet and exercise plan over the course of six months. This approach will not only help you reach your weight loss goals, but it will also improve your overall health and well-being. Remember, it’s essential to be patient and consistent, as lasting change takes time.

Make a plan

Goals can be a powerful source of motivation, but they are only effective if you have a clear plan for achieving them. As you think about your goals and how to achieve them, it’s important to consider the potential challenges and setbacks you may encounter along the way. This will help you stay motivated and focused even when things get tough.

Prioritize your health

Making positive changes in your health is important, but taking on too many at once can lead to adverse reactions and stress. Before making a significant lifestyle change, seek out the help of a health professional. They can provide guidance and support to help you achieve your goals.

Consider chiropractic care

Your muscles, joints, and everything in between will function better with a healthy spine. Chiropractic care helps minimize injuries, muscle aches, headaches, and so much more. Don’t let a poorly performing body keep you from achieving your goals this year. Give our office a call today to see how we can help!
