Controversy. There is oftentimes
controversy in medicine. Controversy can also move medicine toward
clarity. Such is the case of flexed lifting
and its impact on your spine. Your Auburn chiropractor
cautions Auburn back pain patients to cautiously
bend, lift and twist as these create low back pain for
many. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. still does. Recent 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 examined
a number of studies about the effect of lumbar spine flexion lifting and its influence
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 studies were
not specific as to types of people. They studied
two types of people: those with and those without back pain. (1)
Other studies studied specific kinds
FLEXION LIFTING: INFLUENTIAL FOR WORKERS
Researchers concluded that the result
of forward bending on low back pain is determined by on the kind
of job, gender and other such particular factors of workers.
They found that construction workers’ experience of low back pain
wasn’t influenced by the amount 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 then
at one year. They hoped that a
better design of the 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
