Avoiding injury during the move.

You find yourself in a rush to get those last two boxes taped and on the truck. In a moment of impatience, you reach down to lift the box and pull a muscle instead. Injury can happen at any time, especially when there’s so much to do. But being prepared and informed can help in these situations!

During your move you may experience a few typical injuries like a stubbed toe or paper cut. The chance of back injury, however, can be minimized. Lifting things properly is key, and here are a few tips on how to do this:

• Bend at the knees, not the waist.
• Keep the object you’re lifting close to your body.
• Don’t twist your body.
• Avoid lifting things over your head.
• Position legs apart.
• Get a good grip and lift with the legs, not the back.
• When moving something, push rather than pull.
• Keep your footing secure.
• Lift smoothly and slowly; do not jerk.
• Use a dolly to carry objects when possible.

* These tips were compiled by Zee Medical.

Always have a first aid kit available. Keeping one in the glove box or under the seat of your vehicle during the move is a good idea. A properly equipped first aid kit should include the following:

• Band-Aids
• Hand Towels
• Adhesive tape
• Non-adhesive dressing
• Alcohol swab
• Safety Pins
• Crepe bandage
• Scissors
• Sterile eye wash solution
• Antiseptic
• First Aid Pamphlet
• Wound dressing
• Gloves
