Something To Consider:

Avoiding spine end range of motion can reduce the risk of several types of injury. 

The early morning after rising or after prolonged sitting are particularly vulnerable times for back injury:

  • During sleep, when gravity is not compressing the discs of your spine, the accumulate fluid and swell. In the first 30 minutes after arising 54% of the loss of disc height (water content) occurs. (Reilly et al., 1984) Because of this swelling, stresses on the disc during bending activities are increased significantly in the morning (Adams et al., 1987).
  • After just a brief period of sitting or stooping in end range, the disc is stretched, and its protective joint stiffness is compromised (McGill 1999). Even after 30 minutes of rest, residual joint laxity persists! Therefore, avoidance of high-risk activities early in the morning or after sitting or stooping in full flexion is crucial to injury or reinjury prevention.

Avoid injuries with the following principles: avoid end-range motion; rotate jobs to vary loads; allow frequent rest breaks; and keep loads close to the spine (McGill, Norman 1993).
