Do I Right — Prevent Fractures

Do It Right: Unpacking Groceries


Keep spine lengthened and straight, chest lifted and knees bent.

Allow the knees to rest gently against the bumper to brace your body.

Hinge at the hips instead of rounding the back to reach into the trunk.

Lift one bag at a time, keeping shoulders back.
