Two-thirds of all back injuries occur between your knees and the floor.
Always use slow and smooth movements to pick up objects, no matter what their weight. Hurried, jerky movements can strain the muscles in your back. And never try to lift something that is too heavy for you. If you have to strain to carry the load, it's too heavy. Get help or find someone else who can lift it for you.
