Common Moving Injuries To Avoid During Your Next Move
Common Moving Injuries to Avoid During Your Next Move
Nobody likes to get hurt. Would you rather relax on your couch while watching the big game, or potentially injure yourself lifting it? We understand that moving can be rather tough, but it shouldn’t result in injury or pain. If you’ve decided to move your belongings yourself, rather than hiring reputable Dallas movers, here are a few of the most common injuries and tips on how to avoid them during your move to Dallas.
This is the most common among all injuries when moving. Normally, back injuries happen when one uses their back too much during a heavy lift. Perhaps you’ve heard the old adage “lift with your legs, not your back!” It means pretty much what it says; squat down, while maintaining a straight back, get a good grip, find your center of gravity, and lift with your legs.
Just like your back, your knees do a ton of work. There’s no joint in the body that gets more work than your knees. To limit injury, we suggest wearing kneepads and/or braces. They’re not just for athletes or people with pre-existing injuries. Kneepads and braces help you to prevent deterioration of the cartilage and bone in your knee, as well as prevent strain, muscle fatigue, and stress fractures in your bones. Use furniture sliders, too, as they eliminate a lot of the heavy lifting and potential for damage or injury.
