Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center Cautions Back Pain Sufferers About Lifting and Flexion

Controversy. There’s oftentimes controversy in medicine. Controversy can also move medicine toward clarity. Such is the case of flexed lifting and its effect on your spine. Your Paramus chiropractor cautions Paramus back pain patients to cautiously bend, lift and twist as these create low back pain for lots of us. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 impact lumbar spine flexion has and its impact on low back pain onset/persistence. Researchers discovered that lumbar spine flexion lifting wasn’t a differentiator for people with and without low back pain. These investigations weren’t specific as to categories of people. They looked at two types of people: those with and those without back pain. (1) Other studies studied specific types of people.

FLEXION LIFTING: INFLUENTIAL FOR WORKERS

Researchers concluded that the effect of forward bending on low back pain depended on the kind of job, gender and other such specific factors of workers. They noticed that construction workers’ experience of low back pain wasn’t affected by the quantity of time they spent bending forward. They found 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 didn’t). (2) Warehouse workers’ experience of low back pain is influenced by their lifting capacity and psychosocial work environment. Researchers texted workers asking about their low back pain, mental stress, and bodily fatigue over the course of 3 weeks and again at one year. They anticipated 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center works to ensure our work environment is stress-less and low-back-pain-reducing for everyone, our staff and our Paramus chiropractic patients equally!
