Sonia: Hi Darren, I heard you’ve hurt your back. Are you alright?
Darren: Hi Sonia, yes, I am. I hurt it lifting some boxes. I was helping a friend move, and I guess the box was just too heavy. So now I have to wear this support band round my waist. The hospital recommended I wear one for a while, so I went to the chemist’s and picked one up.
Sonia: Oh dear. It must be very painful.
Darren: It was when it happened. I mean, I couldn’t even move for a few minutes. My friend helped me to a chair and then after the pain got a little better, his dad took me to the hospital. At first, I thought we were going to have to call an ambulance.
Sonia: Did you break anything? Surely not.
Darren: No no, I just pulled a muscle. The doctor did an x-ray and nothing wrong showed up. I’ve actually had back problems before, although not from lifting things. Just from general activity, playing sport, things like that.
Sonia: Maybe you just have a bad back. My uncle has, and he’s had it for years. He does a lot of stretching, which seems to help with the pain. He thought about having surgery, but that’s very painful, too.
Darren: Well, I certainly want to avoid that. I think it’s safe to say I won’t be lifting anything heavy any more.
Sonia: Well, that’s probably a good idea in your case, but occasionally we have to do things like that. It’s important to know how to do it properly -you should use your legs to lift, not your back.
Darren: Yes, I know, but I didn’t do that. the. other day. I was in a hurry to get the moving done so I could get home and watch my favourite TV programme.
Sonia: No! Don’t say that! You must have a better reason for putting your back out!
Darren: I know, it’s awful, isn’t it, but its the truth! Look, all I can say is that it’s never going to happen again. I’ve learned my lesson, which is that there is no good reason for putting your back out.
Sonia: Well that’s good. So, take it easy and get lots of rest. Hope it’s better soon.
Darren: Thanks, Sonia. See you later.
