Caption: Skeleton lifting a box incorrectly. Side view X- ray. This image shows the incorrect method of lifting heavy objects using the lower back muscles with the spine bent. This can result in a back injury. The correct method uses the leg muscles in a crouched position with the spine straight. For the correct position see image P100/185.
