2. Supports the Lower Back When Lifting
There are many careers where lifting heavy things every day is just another part of the job – and this can easily take its toll over years of doing it, and can easily lead to very serious injuries that keeping coming back and nagging year after year. It can also lead to even more serious injury on top of that which causes an injury that’s so bad it becomes hard or impossible to work.
There are many back braces on the market that are specifically designed to reduce the strain felt on the lower back during lifting, and these can be a great help for reducing the risk of overall injury. This can even help in cases where you’ve already injured your back and would like to avoid aggravating this old injury or potentially creating a new one.
With this, there are also correct ways to lift without placing too much strain on the back – knees bent and straight up is always considered better.
