How to bend forward correctly (video)

May 9, 2018

The majority of Americans don’t realize they’re bending forward incorrectly. Bending forward at the waist and curving your back increases pressure and strain on your back ligaments, says Nancy Jungling, a physical therapist with Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Centers. “Over time, this can lead to pain and limited mobility,” she says.

Watch Jungling demonstrate how to properly bend forward in the video above and learn how hinging with your hips can help protect your back.

If you are a Sharp Rees-Stealy patient and would like to learn more about your basic body mechanics and self-care for minimizing back stress, ask your doctor to refer you to Jungling’s Back Education and Self-Care Seminar, or call 619-446-1730.

For the news media: To talk with Nancy Jungling, PT, for an upcoming story, contact Erica Carlson, senior public relations specialist, at erica.carlson@sharp.com.
