Wilson Family Chiropractic Cautions Back Pain Sufferers About Lifting and Flexion

Controversy. There’s oftentimes controversy in medicine. Controversy can also push medicine to clarity. Such is the case of flexed lifting and its impact on your spine. Your Millville chiropractor cautions Millville back pain patients to cautiously bend, lift and twist as these start low back pain for lots of us. Wilson Family 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

A new research study analyzed 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 wasn’t a differentiator for people with and without low back pain. These studies were not specific as to categories of people. They looked at two kinds of people: those with and those without back pain. (1) Other studies looked at specific types of people.

FLEXION LIFTING: INFLUENTIAL FOR WORKERS

Researchers concluded that the result of forward bending on low back pain is determined by on the type of job, gender and other such specific factors of workers. They noticed that construction workers’ experience of low back pain was not affected by the quantity of time they were bending forward. They discovered that healthcare workers’ experience of low back pain was affected by the angle of forward bending (more than or equal to 30 degrees prompted low back pain while over 60 degree didn’t). (2) Warehouse workers’ experience of low back pain is affected 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 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) Wilson Family Chiropractic works to ensure our work environment is stress-less and low-back-pain-diminishing for everyone, our staff and our Millville chiropractic patients equally!
