Does lifting with your back straight reduce low back pain?

 

Have you had back pain for a while? Is it worse after lifting? Are you under the impression that you should keep your back straight and brace your ”core” when you lift”?

It’s almost part of our culture that you should “keep your back straight” when you lift. However, it’s important to update culture and ask: what’s the evidence for this advice? Well, you may find it surprising, but the evidence for this advice is ...
