Back pain is one of the most excruciating and debilitating types of pain that people deal with regularly. According to recent reports from Georgetown Health, around 65 million Americans report a recent episode of back pain. Of those millions of Americans, about 16 million adults experience persistent or chronic back pain, and as a result, are limited in certain everyday activities. That means that an estimated 8 percent of all adults in this country are severely limited in their everyday activities due to persistent and chronic back pain.
Back pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal problems that afflict people across the country. Unfortunately, many people simply revert to taking over-the-counter pain medication to temporarily reduce the most acute episodes of pain. Whether it be a pinched nerve, aching muscles, or a more serious musculoskeletal problem, back pain can lead to long-term discomfort and debilitating pain. If untreated, it can also radically affect your mobility and quality of life.
Not only does back pain affect sleeping patterns and mobility, but it can also negatively affect your work life. One recent report suggests that almost one-third of male adults acknowledged that their back pain issues were negatively affecting their employment while 20 percent of women suffered the same debilitating effects of long-term back issues. Furthermore, American workers lose around 83 million days of work each year due to back pain problems, making this issue the leading cause of work-loss days as well as work limitations.
Though chronic back pain is most often associated with people who work at professions that require hard, constant physical labor, it only takes one unfortunate incident for severe, debilitating back pain to occur. According to the American Chiropractic Association, “most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic—meaning they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer. Most people with low back pain recover, however, reoccurrence is common and for a small percentage of people the condition will become chronic and disabling.”
Attempts to lift or move heavy objects are one of the primary causes of back pain problems. Improper lifting techniques, especially if you are not used to physical exertion, can lead to sprained ligaments, strained muscles, ruptured disks, and irritated joints, all of which can lead to severe and recurring episodes of back pain.
Furniture Removal and the Risk of Back Pain Complications
So what exactly do all these statistics on back pain have to do with furniture removal? According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans each year throw out more than 12 million tons of furniture and furnishings. Those millions of tables, couches, sofas, armchairs, and other pieces of old and tarnished furniture are carried, hauled, dragged, pulled, and tugged by individuals out of their homes and out to the curb where garbage collection occurs. As anyone who has tried to move a heavy couch down two flights of stairs knows, one wrong move can lead to several days of severe back pain. Most pieces of furniture weigh at least fifty pounds, and larger pieces of furniture probably weigh significantly more. Even if you are young, healthy, and fit, trying to squeeze a heavy piece of furniture through a door requires awkward movements that could lead to a slipped disk or worse.
What´s even worse is that many municipal garbage collection services may not even offer bulk junk removal services regularly. After all the effort of hauling your old furniture out to the curb, you may have to haul it back into your home or garage if your regular garbage service is unable to remove it for you.
