The most common type of back injury is from back strain. It is caused by improper
twiating, bending, or lifting. As you have probably heard many times, there is a proper
way to lift. Keep your back straight, bending at your knees, straddle the object, and lift
slowly by straightening your legs. If there is any doubt that the object is not safetly
within your lifting capacity, do not attempt to lift it.
