Aaron Chiropractic Clinic Cautions Back Pain Sufferers About Lifting and Flexion

Controversy. There’s always controversy in medicine. Controversy can also push medicine toward clarity. Such is the case of lifting in a flexed position and its impact on your spine. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor cautions Fort Wayne back pain patients to cautiously bend, lift and twist as these spur low back pain for lots of us. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic still does. New 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 impact lumbar spine flexion has and its influence on low back pain onset/persistence. Researchers discovered that lumbar spine flexion lifting wasn’t a determining factor for people with and without low back pain. These studies were not specific as to categories of people. They looked at two kinds of people: those with and those without back pain. (1) Other research projects looked at specific types of people.

FLEXION LIFTING: INFLUENTIAL FOR WORKERS

Researchers concluded that the result of forward bending on low back pain depended on the type of job, gender and other such particular factors of workers. They noticed that construction workers’ experience of low back pain wasn’t affected by the amount of time they were 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 affected by their lifting capacity and psychosocial work environment. Researchers asked workers via text about their low back pain, mental stress, and bodily fatigue over the course of 3 weeks and again at one year. They anticipated that a better designed work week (work days vs rest days) and a set reasonable maximum lifting threshold per day will help prevent low back pain and reduce stress. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic works to make sure our work environment is stress-less and low-back-pain-reducing for everyone, our staff and our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients equally!
