Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Cautions Back Pain Sufferers About Lifting and Flexion

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 explain 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 of people.

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.
