The NAF Physio Podcast Episode 38: Talking About Spinal Flexion When Lifting
***WARNING: Explicit content***
In this episode Greg and Adam discuss an always controversial topic: Bending when lifting. Should we keep our backs straight when picking things up? Is is ok to allow the spine to flex when bending forward? In this episode they discuss a recent systematic review published in JOSPT (https://www.jospt.org/doi/abs/10.2519/jospt.2020.9218) that questions some commonly held, deeply entrenched beliefs about lifting with a bent spine. As usual be prepared for some strong views, opinions and of course some language.
