Repetitive strain injuries in the retail trade
Most large retailers today use manual handling aids and automation to help with the unloading and storage of products, although shelf stacking is still usually performed manually and it’s here that regular bending and stretching can lead to repetitive strain injury, especially if heavy weights are involved.
Back pain is one of the most frequent manual handling repetitive strain injuries and the reason is that your back is a complex structure comprising bones, joints, soft tissue and nerves that can easily sustained damage. Because of this complexity it can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint the precise cause of any pain.
The majority of instances of back pain are not caused by serious damage. Instead it is usually things such as pinched and/or irritated nerves, and small sprains and strains. Back pain can be caused by ordinary everyday activities in the home as well as at work; often gradually developing over a period of time in the form of repetitive strain injury
The most common causes of back pain include:
- Having to bend in awkward positions or bending for longer periods of time
- Lifting or setting down heavy loads including carrying pushing or pulling
