Should You Be Using Back Support Lifting Belts?

Unless you have been living in a cage for the past 25 years, you have seen many construction workers, factory employees, and building supply employees donning those wide back support lifting belts. Perhaps you have used or are using a lumbar support for your back pain believing they help prevent injury or even lessen back pain.

Are they necessary for treatment or prevention of lower back injuries? Hmm!

Go to the latest installment to read more:

Spring is arriving soon and for many it couldn't come fast enough. It has been a snowy winter for the United States and there is still plenty of snow that will fall before the weather warms enough to say good riddance.

Until then be careful shoveling snow and walking on ice. Most lower back injuries are preventable. Don't end up with a lifetime of needless pain and misery due to carelessness or avoidable injuries.

Until next month: keep moving, get stronger, keep loosing weight. and get real lower back pain help here:

Yours for better health,

Dr. Myers
