Healthy Moving Tips
The moving process can be difficult, especially when you are trying to move heavy objects. Picking up and setting down heavy items can do serious damage to the musculoskeletal system of the back. Knowing the correct way to lift and move furniture, boxes, and other heavy items may be the best way to protect your back and ensure that you do not suffer a serious injury during your move.

Whether you are out of shape or go to the gym regularly, it is important to follow a few simple rules during the moving process. Some of the most important include:
Lift with your legs. This cannot be stressed enough. The back can be very fragile, and repeated lifting can cause potentially long-term, chronic problems.
Use a dolly or a friend to help lift heavy furniture and electronics. Attempting to carry bulky items alone can lead to serious injury.
Take particular care when moving glass items. If the glass shatters, be careful when picking it up.
By following these simple moving rules, you can drastically reduce your risk of injury.
