  • Back injury results from insults in two broad categories, acute(fast) and chronic (slow). Acute Back Injuries: Slips, trips and falls account for many back injuries. Good housekeeping is essential in reducing these injury risk factors. Auto accidents cause a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries. For more information on driving safely, see the American Automobile Association Foundation For Traffic Safety at http://www.aaafts.org/ A sedentary lifestyle, especially when combined with infrequent heavy lifting increases one’s risk of back injury and pain. Improper lifting is a leading cause of acute “overexertion” injury to the back. For more information see the slide in this series titled “Lifting Techniques.” Chronic Back Injuries: The spine has a natural curve. When the spine is not in this “natural” posture, forces applied to the spine compress spinal discs unevenly, increasing the strain placed on spinal discs and ligaments. It is therefore important to maintain neutral spinal postures when sitting for extended periods, when lifting heavy and/or bulky objects and when stooped for long intervals. Improper lifting can lead to chronic back injury, typically in situations where applied forces are lower and where lifting tasks occur over months or years and involve higher repetition.
