A media lifter is an essential piece of equipment for anyone in the sign and graphics industry and is the ideal solution to prevent back injuries and comply with health and safety regulations. Many lower back strains occur during everyday activities such as heavy lifting., stretching, twisting and reaching overhead. So, what is low back pain? A series of muscles and ligaments in your back hold the bones of your spinal column in place. You can strain these muscles by stretching them too far, causing tiny tears in the tissue. The muscles are then weakened so they may not be able to correctly hold the bones of your spinal column in place, resulting in an unstable spine and pain. Back injury can be extremely painful and very dissimilating and lead to time off work.
