Moving Tips

Dr. David Rothbart and Justin Keller, physical therapy manager, have compiled some tips on how to avoid back and neck injuries and overexertion while moving:

  • Know your physical limits. Hire movers for the heavier items, such as couches, refrigerators and other furniture as these items are best left to the professionals.

  • Budget time for your move. Don’t try to do it all in one day, rather space it out over the course of several days to prevent overexertion.

  • Preventative stretches will help to reduce the chance for injury. A great one to try is a prone press-up, especially after bending forward and lifting for several hours or days.

  • Always lift with the item as close to your body as possible, and keep your back and head in an upright position.

  • A temporarily used back brace may make help make it though a long day of lifting; however, one should not be used on a daily or prolonged basis. Only wear one as you may need it.
