Movers in Concord CA - Moving Safely
“Lift with your legs”, “do not
pack the box too heavy”, “will that fit through the door”
- sound familiar? If you have ever moved yourself those
phrases and countless others are all too familiar and each
highlights some physical risk involved in moving.
Most of us want to think that moving ourselves is the best
option, but the fact is that most of us are hardly prepared for
the toll it can take on our physical well being. Even if you
are extremely fit and regularly exercise, your are still at
risk when twisting and turning your body in ways you are not
accustomed to when maneuvering large pieces of furniture
through tight doorways or up into a truck. Ask any physical
therapist or chiropractor and they will tell you that injuries
can occur within a split second when people over exert
themselves to accommodate some irregular situation.
This makes sense, our bodies and muscles adapt to their
regular use. Therefore it is when we ask our body to do things
out of the ordinary, our muscles are not trained for that
motion and an injury occurs. In most cases these injuries are
temporary and heal within days, but it is just as easy to have
a small injury as to hurt your sciatica or back and have to
live with pain for months or even years.
In most comparisons the cost of a professional mover is not
much more than the cost of doing it yourself. Movers in Concord
are also more than happy if you just hire them to move the
larger items, so give hiring one a second thought and if you
choose to do it yourself be certain to be careful. Concord has
too much to enjoy every week than to be laid up in pain from
not spending the little extra on Concord movers.
