Watch your back!

Avoid injuring your back while on the job

We've all had that back twinge—a reminder we've either lifted something incorrectly or too heavy. It can be a scary moment.

When you were younger, you probably never worried about your back. Even if it gave you a little trouble, you most likely never gave it much thought because it probably was a result of some crazy thing you lifted with your friends or you just overdid it. That is until you did that one thing that made you realize your back isn't as resilient as you once thought. From then on, you likely have gained a lot more respect for this key part of your anatomy.

We all could benefit from some reminders about how our backs work and remembering easy tips to keep our bodies moving freely.
