Moses Chiropractic Cautions Back Pain Sufferers About Lifting and Flexion

Controversy. There is always controversy in medicine. Controversy can also push medicine to clarity. Such is the case of flexed lifting and its impact on your spine. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor cautions West Palm Beach back pain patients to cautiously bend, lift and twist as these create low back pain for many. Moses Chiropractic still does. New studies describe more about the effects of flexion and lifting on the spine and its experience of back pain.

FLEXION LIFTING: NO INFLUENCE

The latest research study examined several studies about the effect of lumbar spine flexion lifting and its impact on low back pain onset/persistence. Researchers found that lumbar spine flexion lifting was not a differentiator for people with and without low back pain. These investigations were not specific as to categories of people. They studied two kinds of people: those with and those without back pain. (1) Other research projects studied specific types of people.

FLEXION LIFTING: INFLUENTIAL FOR WORKERS

Researchers decided that the effect of forward bending on low back pain depended on the kind of job, gender and other such particular factors of workers. They found that construction workers’ experience of low back pain wasn’t affected by the quantity of time they were bending forward. They discovered that healthcare workers’ experience of low back pain was altered by the angle of forward bending (more than or equal to 30 degrees triggered low back pain while over 60 degree did not). (2) Warehouse workers’ experience of low back pain is affected by their lifting capacity and psychosocial work environment. Researchers questioned workers via text about their low back pain, mental stress, and bodily fatigue over the course of 3 weeks and again at one year. They hoped that a better designed work week (work days vs rest days) and a set reasonable maximum lifting threshold per day will assist in preventing low back pain and lessen stress. (3) Moses Chiropractic works to ensure our work environment is stress-less and low-back-pain-reducing for everyone, our staff and our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients equally!
