What are the consequences of poor lifting technique?


Back pain and sciatica

 

We have all been told over and over that we should always bend at the knees and keep a straight back when lifting.  What happens if you don’t do this? CASE STUDY:

20 year old male patient, that began experiencing lower back pain and morning stiffness, which has steadily worsened to the point where he is now in constant pain and finds it difficult to work.

At the base of the spine, it was identified that the last vertebral disc had become greatly reduced compared to the other disc spaces in his spine.

This is a degenerative process that greatly accelerates if the back joints are readily subjected to high levels of strain during lifting.

Bending at the knees and keeping a straight back when we lift keeps this strain to a minimum. This is otherwise known as keeping  a natural spine!

Although Osteopathic treatment may help relieve the pain and stiffness that occurs in a case like this, the real cure is to make sure that you look after your lower back in the first place

Sciatica


Sciatica

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, running from your lower back, through your pelvis and buttocks and all the way down both legs, to your feet. Any pain caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve is often referred to as Sciatica. The pain caused radiates out from your lower back down to your calf; this pain ranges from mild to very painful.

Causes of sciatica

The most common cause of Sciatica is disc injuries (mentioned in a previous blog here by Dynamic Osteopaths) and is often referred to as a ‘slipped disc’. Other common causes can involve lumbar spinal stenosis (spinal foramen narrowing), degenerative disc disease (arthritis / spondylosis) and pregnancy. Less common causes include injuries, infections, or growth in the spine.

Symptoms of sciatica

If you are suffering from Sciatica you will experience at least one of the following symptoms;

1) Constant dull pain in one side of your buttocks or leg.

2) Felling of burning or tingling down your leg.

3) Numbness and difficulty when moving your leg or foot.

4) When you stand or walk you experience difficulty due to a sharp pain.

5) When sitting the pain worsens.

Treatment of Sciatica

Acute sciatica may pass without the need for actual treatment, however it is always important to get it checked by your osteopath. Meanwhile to help relieve the symptoms you can take over the counter painkillers, apply hot or cold packs to the area and perform light exercise. In more chronic case of sciatica when pain is persistent, here at Dynamic Osteopaths we provide light manual therapy along side a structured exercise programme under supervision to help ease your symptoms and provide a better recovery. Failing all means of conservative treatment by your osteopath an epidural steroid injections can also be delivered at the source of the inflamed sciatic nerve root to help alleviate the pain. If the pain has not been relieved with manual or medical treatments as stated above then surgery may be needed, but this is very uncommon.

Prevention of Sciatica

To help prevent sciatica there are some measures you can put in place to minimise your risk of a back injury or ‘slipped disc’ that could lead to sciatica. Firstly, you need to ensure you have a good posture and if you are required to lift heavy objects at work you need to ensure your lifting technique is suitable to stop injury. Secondly, before you participate in any form of exercise ensure you stretch and when you have finished the exercise session stretch again. Lastly, there are some very simple and regular exercise that you should perform to help improve your flexibility to minimise the risk of a back injury.

Sports Medicine: The benefit of neuromuscular training and rehab in athletes – ACL study


As participation in high-demand sports has increased over the past decade, so has the number of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in teens and young adults. In a study appearing in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery(JBJS), it was found that neuromuscular training for high school and college-age athletes – which focuses on the optimal way to bend, jump, land and pivot the knee – is an effective and inexpensive way to avoid ACL damage, which ultimately relates to high demand on costs and time.

The ACL is a critical ligament that stabilizes the knee joint. An ACL injury, one of the most common sports injuries, often requires surgery and a lengthy period of rehabilitation. Recent research has found that screening tools such as a “hop test” or isokinetic dynamometer which measure muscle strength to identify neuromuscular deficits, as well as neuromuscular training programs, may reduce ACL injuries.

Researchers evaluated three strategies for young athletes: no training or screening, universal neuromuscular training, and universal screening with neuromuscular training for identified high-risk athletes only. 

Findings:

  • On average, universal training reduced the incidence of ACL injury by 63%, while the screening program, on average, reduced the incidence rate by 40%.
  • Out of 10,000 athletes, the model predicted 300 ACL injuries in the no-screening group, 110 in the universal training group, and 180 in the universal training/screening for “at risk” athletes group.

While it is not a surprise that training was more cost-effective than no intervention, the  magnitude of the benefit was significant.

Dynamic Osteopaths explain how this further identifies the huge benefit and importance that the correct form of clinical rehabilitation is performed and what effect this can have on prevention and cost effective treatment.

Proprioceptive neuromuscular training has huge benefits in creating dynamic joint stabilization and biomechanical control, which ultimately allows the joint to function at its strongest in the most optimal form.
