You've heard it all before: bend your knees and keep your back straight! If it were really that simple, we'd all be lifting this way and back injuries would be a thing of the past. The fact is, there is no single correct way to lift. There are, however, better, less demanding, and safer ways to lift, and that's what this program is all about.
In this program occupational therapist Michael Melnik introduces the viewer to 3 simple and memorable principles:
- Keep it Close and Keep the Curves
- Build a Bridge
- Feet First
