Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic Cautions Back Pain Sufferers About Lifting and Flexion

Controversy. There’s oftentimes controversy in medicine. Controversy can also move medicine toward clarity. Such is the case of lifting in a flexed position and its impact on your spine. Your Montreal chiropractor cautions Montreal back pain patients to carefully bend, lift and twist as these initiate low back pain for lots of us. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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

The latest 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 was not a differentiator for people with and without low back pain. These investigations weren’t specific as to categories of people. They looked at two kinds of people: those with and those without back pain. (1) Other research projects studied specific kinds of people.

FLEXION LIFTING: INFLUENTIAL FOR WORKERS

Researchers concluded that the effect 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 was not influenced by the quantity of time they were bending forward. They found that healthcare workers’ experience of low back pain was affected by the angle of forward bending (more than or equal to 30 degrees triggered low back pain while over 60 degree did not). (2) Warehouse workers’ experience of low back pain is influenced 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 then at one year. They hoped that a better designed work week (work days vs rest days) and a set reasonable maximum lifting threshold per day will assist in preventing low back pain and reduce stress. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic works to ensure our work environment is stress-less and low-back-pain-diminishing for everyone, our staff and our Montreal chiropractic patients equally!
