Abstract

Low back pain (LBP) is the leading cause of disability worldwide and accounts for a large proportion of work related musculoskeletal disorders. Despite mandatory manual handling programmes delivered routinely Despite manual handling training being delivered routinely in the workplace, LBP still affects up to 25% of industrial workers in a calendar year. One factor thought to contribute to LBP are sustained increased muscle forces reported to be deleterious to spinal health by creating prolonged high compressive loads on the spinal structures1. Manual handling training that involves structured guidance on moving, lifting and supporting a load following traditional biomechanical principles to ensure spinal stability is mandatory in many workplace environments. however the Its effect that manual handling training on trunk muscle activity during lifting is not yet known and could provide a valuable insight into why manual handling training is unable to prevent the development of LBP
