Back Pain Caused by Lifting 

Even the strongest of us have suffered pain at the hands of lifting a few boxes. Why is that? It has to do with an improper lifting technique. Here are a few tips to ensure you do not hurt your back the next time you lift items. 

Squat down to the item and then lift with your knees. Never bend at the waist. 
Do not twist your waist while lifting. 
Do not hold the item above your shoulders and keep it close to your body. 

If you follow this advice, you should be able to lift and carry your items without a problem. If you have suffered back pain from carrying heavy items then visit your chiropractor to set things right.

We trust Kris and Melissa completely. They have been a huge help to my whole family. Melissa's prenatal care helped my baby stay in the correct position, greatly easing my birth. With my first two, they were sunny-side up, and it is no fun birthing that way! Melissa has been a huge help in assisting my recovery from a concussion. My kids see Kris for dislocated fingers, sprained ankles, sprained knee, etc. They are always right as rain within hours to a day or two. And, chiropractic has helped with my teenage daughter's process of having her food allergies cleared.
