Hebrews 4:16 - Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Back and neck problems are seldom caused by a single injury. An activity is done the same way over and over, and then one event happens and you can’t bounce back from it.
That’s why you’ve heard stories of people rupturing a disk just by slipping on the bathroom floor or tripping over the sidewalk. The disk was already being slowly injured by doing things incorrectly, and then one more thing hit, the straw in the proverbial camel’s back, and the disk herniated.
Find some tips from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons to help reduce your risk of back pain and injury in their article, “Preventing Back Pain at Work and as Home,” such as positioning the person or object close to your body before lifting.
God will help us in our time of need, but we must be willing, as the Bible verse states above to approach God with confidence. Don’t just overdo your work and lift something too heavy for you. Ask God and he will send someone your way to help, because he cares about every area of our lives.
