If you work in the trucking industry, it is important to be aware of the health issues you can face and ways to stay safe on the job. Driving a large truck for long periods of time can take a significant physical toll. Many truck drivers experience neck and back pain from sitting for long periods of time or carpal tunnel syndrome and shoulder pain from steering their truck.
Causes of Back Injuries
Staying in good physical health, stretching, and taking regular rest breaks can help prevent repetitive stress injuries. Carrying or lifting heavy objects has the potential to result in serious back injuries, and many truckers become injured after dropping a heavy object or slipping/tripping while loading or unloading their truck. These injuries can be prevented by using the appropriate equipment and safety gear, which is where Aeroflow Healthcare can help.
Back Brace Benefits
To stay healthy and pain-free, truckers should wear back braces, get assistance from others when needed, and use mechanical aids to help lift heavy loads. Back braces allow truckers to avoid further injury. There are many brands of back braces on the market which can make finding a quality brace a difficult task. Aspen Medical back braces are some of the best on the market, which is why Aeroflow proudly distributes this brand.
Aeroflow Healthcare provides a variety of back braces to meet all of your medical needs. These braces are lightweight and are designed with moisture wicking material and breathable zones for maximum comfort and minimum skin irritation.
