Using Proper Body Mechanics as a Caregiver

These are a few tips on body mechanics that Caregivers should remember:

  • Maintain your normal spinal curves
  • Use your legs to lift
  • Bend your knees when lifting
  • Ask for help when moving objects (not more than 25 lbs.)
  • Push objects instead of pulling
  • Use a steady stool to reach supplies in high places
  • Move your feet, rather than twisting your neck and back
  • Exercise regularly after checking with your doctor
