View Full Version : Lifting

Can anyone tell me if lifting heavy objects can cause an existing scoliosis to get worse? I've always tried to avoid heavy lifting but perhaps I'm being overly careful.

I never thought lifting heavy objects would harm anyone's scoliosis. I have back pain and my mum keeps telling me to bend my knees when lifting heavy objects, or even lifting something from the floor.

Hope this helps.
