Medical illustration depicting how certain lifting action damages the back. The image displays a comparison between incorrect lifting technique with the correct technique. This comparative image is suitable for print or online publications educating the public about proper technique to lift heavy objects.
Lifting a heavy object while keeping both feet close to the object and bending the upper body transfers all the weight to a small area in the lower spine. Bending the knees and keeping the body straight, while using thigh muscles distributes the weight, and protects the lower back. Poor lifting technique can cause acute injury, as well as chronic back problems.
