  • Dental Professionals - Work Related Neck Aches & Back Pain

    Dentists, Periodontists, Endodontists, Orthodontists and Hygienists have to deal with occupational related neck and back pain. Dentists spend most of the work day hovering over patients in various positions that do not work well for their necks, shoulders and backs. Sometimes they are in these positions for hours.

    The incidence of neck pain among dentists and hygienists is common with as many as 71% of Dentists and 82% of Hygienists reporting work related neck and back pain. In dentistry, the upper trapezius muscle is the culprit in a myriad of head and neck pain syndromes. The delivery of dental care places high demands on this muscle and can result in a painful condition called trapezius myalgia.

    Symptoms include pain, spasms, or tenderness in the upper trapezius muscle. Trigger points in this muscle result in headaches behind the eye, into the temple, and in the back of the neck.

    The forward flexion and lateral flexion/rotation (the common movements of dentists) compromise the soft tissue around the neck, creating and developing imbalances, and reducing  neuromuscular efficiency

    Here are some more recommendations specifically for the dental profession:

    • Don't position the patient too high
    • Use properly selected magnification
    • Use armrests
    • Take Frequent Breaks & Manage Stress Appropriately
    • Use Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators for relief of chronic pain and stiffness

     

     

    The dentists should not live their professional life in discomfort. Unfortunately, no professional dentist has escaped debilitating neck and back pain issues during his or her career.

    Most ergonomic injuries in dentistry result from counteracting torque for prolonged periods of time. Torque or “rotational force” occurs when a system becomes unbalanced.

    • The main culprit in torque generation as it relates to operator position is our own head. The human head is 8 percent of our total body weight.
    • The average man’s head is 14 pounds and the average woman’s head is 11 pounds.

    To achieve a direct line of vision into the oral cavity, operators are required to lean or tilt forward in some manner. This is a delivery requirement even when using a mouth mirror and loupes, although both implements can decrease the degree of forward lean or tilt, which is helpful to reduce torque.

    Two significant types of operator forward lean or tilt occur commonly in treatment delivery.

    • The first type is often described as head declination with the fulcrum point positioned in the cervical area of the neck.
    • Second type of operator forward lean or tilt produces an even more dramatic comparison. It is common to observe operators leaning forward from the pelvis as much or even more than 30 degrees to gain a more favorable vision line into the oral cavity.

    Exercise and physical therapy should be part of every dentist’s routine. Awkward and torque producing operator positions resisted by prolonged static muscle contractions are the main occupational hazard to a dentist’s physical well being.

  • Common Causes of Neck and Back Pain: Loss of Neck Curve


    loss-of-neck-curveWondering what the source of your mysterious neck and back pain might be?  It turns out that the curve in your neck might be causing those aches and pains – or rather, the loss of a healthy neck curve. The loss of a cervical curve – also known as cervical kyphosis – is a condition that’s caused by bad posture. Everyone should have a curve in their neck, as it helps keep the body balanced.  What’s more, this small curve helps the head stay balanced on top of the spine, thus preventing it from falling forward.  When a person slouches or just their head too far forward, the curve is diminished. This can cause significant strain and pain for the neck muscles. In some severe causes, this can even cause paralysis.

    When bad posture is maintained for too long, this leads to the development of cervical kyphosis. This condition describes the process that occurs when the neck curve begins to straighten. In some cases, the neck curve can actually reverse, causing significant spinal issues.

    How do you know if you have cervical kyphosis?  Take a look at the following symptoms:

    - Chronic neck pain

    - Headaches

    - Reduced range of motion in the neck

    - Weakness in the arms and legs

    - Loss of grip strength

    - Difficulty walking

    - Difficulty with bladder and bowels

    - From the side, your ear canal does not line up with your shoulder

    posture-pump-1400d-for-neck-pain-reliefIn extreme cases, paralysis from the neck down can occur. If you suspect you have cervical kyphosis, it’s important to make an appointment with a chiropractor. During this appointment, your chiropractor can take X-rays, go through a physical examination, and perform other tests to determine your diagnosis and, if necessary, your treatment options.

    That’s precisely where the Posture Pump® Dual Disc Hydrator® Model 1400-D comes into play! Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, which is vital to maintaining good posture. Posture Pump® is an online retailer that specializes in neck and back-related pain products.    Posture Pump® products are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can help alleviate the symptoms caused by neck and back conditions.
