Risks to the body with heavy weight


  • Discs
  • As we age, your discs become less spongy and they narrow
  • Most common injuries are small tears
    • Young people develop acute tears, whereas older people develop disc degeneration
  • Muscles
  • Muscles are overstretched during unexpected load bearing, or exertion with poor posture and the muscle becomes strained
  • Muscular spasms occur when the nerve supplying the muscle is irritated
  • Ligaments
  • They become overstretched causing instability at the joint
  • They can become under stretched which reduces movement
