Back Pain

Recommended Posts

I don't know but it seems that on some days I can operate for long periods of time without any significant ache in my lower back but on other days, I can't really operate for more than  5 minutes! I've tried everything to ensure my vest is sitting on my shoulders and hips on every occasion. Anyone got any ideas what the problem might be?

There are a multitude of reasons for back pain when it comes to Steadicam. Vest set up, balance of the rig, adjusting your socket block screws properly, where your vest sits on your body, how you stand and move. What kind of vest do you have?  

Also, do you have an exercise program to strengthen your back and legs? Stretching, yoga, physical therapy and massage are all things that can alleviate back pain. I switched to the Exovest and have almost zero back fatigue. Feel free to PM me with any more questions.
