Tip of the Week

When it comes to benefits of the back support belt, the jury seems to be out. Some people swear by them and wouldn't be caught dead lifting anything without them. Others, can take 'em or leave 'em. After reviewing scientific studies on the value of back support belts in preventing lower back injury, OSHA came to the conclusion that they had no conclusion. So they didn't make wearing a back belt mandatory. So until further notice, the use of back support belts and braces is optional, unless an employer insists. It sort of all boils down to personal preference. If it works for you, go for it. In any case, it couldn't hurt.
