In December, Dr Bart Bishop, wrote an article that appeared in Pain.com called “Why Your Back Hurts”. In the article, Dr. Bishop talks about how to lift objects properly. He describes a method where you actually lift the object twice –one mentally and one physically. This article makes a lot of sense as you need to understand what you are trying to lift and how you are going to lift it before you attempt to lift the object. It does not matter if the object is a piece of paper on the floor or a large box. Understanding how to lift properly is equally as important as the lift itself.
