  • Sailing & Back Pain: What You Need to Know

     

    Sailing and racing is enjoyed by countless individuals the world over. It’s a fun, exciting, and adventurous outdoor activity. Many sailors and racers enjoy the sport because it offers a liberating connection to nature and the elements. The constantly changing conditions of the wind and sea, however, can add to the risk of neck and back pain. This is a commonly reported issue, which should come as no surprise, given the immense physical demands involved in sailing.

    Often, the surrounding environment of the sea can be unpredictable. This usually requires vigorous, quick movements during sailing and racing. Many sailing aficionados report not only pain in the neck and/or back, but acute shoulder and arm stiffness as well. When put to action while boating, the sometimes awkward movements and positions involved can contribute to hyper-extension, or locking of the joints.

    Whether sailing or racing, one common cause of back pain is due to over-arching the low back due to a weak core. Additionally, stress put on the spine while sailing using positional, repetitive motions can lead to disc bulging/protrusion. This causes the back (and neck) to lose their proper postural curves over time. As bones clamp down on the discs of the spine, nutrient-rich lubricating fluid is forced out of the disc space. This common occurrence causes bones and joints to dry up, decay, and become painfully stiff.

    Tips For Prevention

    The ever-changing conditions of the sea reinforce the importance of being in good physical condition. This will help to avoid musculoskeletal issues that may lead to bigger health problems down the road. One should practice regular cardiovascular, core, and flexibility training. Taking regular breaks while sailing will also help maintain endurance and stamina on the water. As with any physical exercise (weightlifting, yoga, etc.), developing a habit of practicing proper form and stretching/warming up joints before setting sail is crucial. Finally, if there are any areas of technical skill that need improvement, seek out training/coaching to strengthen these skills beforehand.

    A healthy balance of nutrition and hydration is just as important as physical training while sailing. When navigating the sometimes-erratic settings of the wind and ocean, it’s important to maintain a regular intake of good carbohydrates. Equally as critical is the consistent intake of water. Dehydration when sailing leads to decreased energy and weakend muscle strength. It is recommended to consume 500ml of water or sport drink one half-hour before setting sail. Once on the water, it’s a good idea to drink 150ml every 15 minutes, especially during a vigorous boat race.

    Regular use of Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators® before and after racing and sailing will help shape and restore the essential curves of the back and neck. Additionally, Posture Pump® decompresses and hydrates compressed, damaged discs, relieving painful back and neck stiffness.

  • Neck & Back Pain: Prescription Drug Abuse

    Neck & Back Pain: Prescription Drug Abuse

    When dealing with chronic neck or back pain, one can easily develop a dependency on powerful opioids. When the neck and back are compromised, it doesn’t take long for day-to-day activities to also be impacted. The pain may start from the neck, radiating all the way down to the lower back, or may be limited to one area or the other. This prolonged kind of pain can make simple tasks in life feel like an uphill struggle, and can become quite draining. Solutions to relieving neck pain can seem limited, and individuals are often influenced by the "quick fix" promise of painkillers. However, this can often lead to the development of a symbiotic relationship with prescription drugs.

    Characteristics of Addiction

    Addiction is a behavioral and psychological condition that exhibits a strong craving or compulsion to over-attend to one’s desires, thus creating a dependency. Sometimes, individuals don’t realize when they have created an attachment to something, whether that be a controlled substance, an object, or any kind of activity. One can then convince him/herself to view certain behaviors as the norm, accepting and adapting them into their daily routine, potentially discrediting the reality of addiction.

    Here are some common indicators of addiction:

    1. Withholding updates: Limited communication with doctor about medication usage and/or updates of effects
    2. Misusing medication: You find yourself using the medication other than for it's intended use
    3. Creating own directions: Not taking medicine as directed
    4. Escaping life responsibilities: The amount of usage has led to foregoing responsibilities, daily activities, etc.

    Becoming addicted to prescriptions may cloud one's judgment, overshadowing the drug's initial intended use. The actual requirement of the opiate may have already been met, but one's body may be deceivingly saying otherwise due to an increased tolerance. Tolerance is developed from long-term use of a drug, leading to a need for a stronger dosage. This is a mental and physical trigger of the addiction, causing an “I need more” reaction. In truth, reaching this point is more of a warning sign to decrease the habit and possibly find alternative solutions to the pain.

    Conversely, abruptly stopping one's medication can have physical side effects. Withdrawal symptoms occur when use of the drug is reduced or stopped within a short period of time. Withdrawal symptoms from prescription painkillers can include flu-like symptoms, and can last anywhere from 24 hours to upwards of 10 days. The severity and duration of withdrawals varies depending on an individual's  level of dependency on the substance – length of time abusing the drug, amount of use, etc. It's important to be aware of these risks when researching pain relief sources.

    Some Stats

    According to the 2016 National Study on Drug Use and Health, the most abused prescription drug falls under painkillers, with 3.3 million users. The U.S. consumes about 80 percent of the world’s prescription drugs. This is indicative of how susceptible many  are to becoming dependent on medications. The power of influence is a strong force in our society, because of how common it is for many to resort to painkillers, thus becoming addicted.

    It IS okay to use prescription painkillers!

    With moderate to severe back or neck pain, it is important to explore all medication options. This is especially true if the pain is chronic. It is okay to use prescription painkillers! This may be the most effective treatment for you. Your Healthcare Professional will make the best recommendation of treatment,  and will thoroughly examine your pain. It is important to be honest about what you are experiencing – location and intensity of pain – and your medical history. Your family medical history is also vital to the Doctor’s diagnoses; They must have a clear understanding of the potential risks/side effects from the prescribed medication. It's important to follow up with your Doctor if you experience changes/side effects of any new prescription.

    What Are My Options?

    Alternate solutions to prescription drugs are quickly gaining traction, such as controlled exercises, alternatives to sitting desks in offices, and at-home tools like Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators®!

    Posture Pump® specializes in neck and back-related pain products. These Disc Hydrators® are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can help alleviate many symptoms caused by neck and back conditions.

  • Great Ways to Stop a Desk Job from Ruining Your Health

    As more and more businesses are incorporating internet-based knowledge into their company workflow, computers and other digital technologies are becoming more frequently required to complete daily tasks in the workplace. Performing work at a computer usually involves sitting at an office desk, and even though some individuals might enjoy the lack of activity that this kind of job may bring, it is truly detrimental to our health. The health risks that come with sitting down for, what it seems like, infinite hours per day are endless. Heart disease, a slower metabolism, cardiovascular disease, and neck and back pain are all cases, among the many not mentioned, that can arise from sitting too long.

     Ways to Take Control of Neck and Back Pain

    Neck and back pain are some of the most common outcomes and complaints from sitting at a desk for too long. It can be induced from from bad posture, the framework of your chair, or the position of your head in comparison to what you’re working on at your desk. Whatever the cause may be, it is important to prevent the discomfort to stop these somewhat minor issues from turning into impactful ones that can take you out of work completely.

     Neck pain most likely comes from the symptoms of bad posture--rounded shoulders, a forward head position, and a curved spine from slouching. There are a variety of exercises that can be done to help alleviate the pain you’re experiencing. Try using the “puppet string” posture method before completing any sitting exercise. With this, it is important to sit up tall so you feel as though your spine is being pulled upwards. A great workout for a tight neck is called cervical retraction. Slightly tuck your neck toward your chin, as if your making a “double chin”, and hold this position for a few seconds, and repeat 5 times.

     Along with the neck, desk workers can often experience back pain too. To help decrease spinal pain throughout the workday, relieve some of the tension between your shoulder blades by positioning your arms around your back-- like you’re giving yourself a big hug. You will feel the tension disappear as you breathe in and out while holding your arms the way described.

    A great product line that can help with spinal compression is Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators®! This comfortable line of at-home neck/back pain devices decompress and hydrate the discs in the neck and back.

    Consider Using a Sit-Stand Desk

    Sit-stand desks are the new fad in many corporations around the world! For companies that have adopted this concept, there has been quite an improvement in employee wellness. Think about it, sitting all day comes with very limited movement, which is extremely detrimental to our overall health. With a standing desk, you’re giving your body the opportunity to completely change its position while still working. If standing desks are not provided in your workplace, click here to purchase one and experience the difference it can make to your body!

     

    Walk Around the Office

    Being static at your desk all day is a contributor to bad health. It is vital that we leave our desks periodically throughout the day to get out bodies moving. Along with the fitness related advantages, taking walks around the office can give your mind a break. After a brief pause away from work, you’re more likely to come back more motivated and awake than before.

    Group Fitness Attendance

    Feel like challenging your coworkers in a really fun and active way? Motivate yourself and your colleagues to join a fitness event in the community! Whether it is a zumba class, or a local race, it gets everyone out of the office and involved with exercise. If you are struggling to find a fitness related event in your area, create one! Using an online event planning platform makes it super easy to invite your friends and track your RSVPs. You’ll turn into the most active workplace in no time!

  • Posture Pump® Deluxe Full Spine - Model 4100-S Instructions

    Posture Pump® Deluxe Full Spine Relieves Painful Neck and Back Pain, Stiffness, Headaches and Fatigue - Model 4100-S

    Step-By-Step Instructions: Easy to use at home device- just minutes a day for neck and back pain relief, increased flexibility, & range of motion!

    Before you begin, here are some safety precautions:

    • You shouldn't use Posture Pump® without consulting with your Healthcare Professional, as certain joint, nerve, disc, vascular, and other disorders or weaknesses could potentially be aggravated and worsened.
    • Do not use if you have implanted spinal hardware.
    • If you are pregnant, you should not use Posture Pump® beyond your first trimester.
    • Do not use if you are injured.
    • Never inflate to the point of pain.
    • Never cover up or block off open ends of hand pump (Safety Release Valve.)
    • While the neck unit is inflated, you should NOT reposition your body. When using the Model 4100-S, always apply the back unit first. When all movement with the back unit is complete, apply neck unit. Completely deflate neck unit and release Comfort Visor™ before moving back unit.
    • If pain results during treatment, discontinue use immediately and consult your Healthcare Professional.
    • If your back is sensitive or extremely stiff, first use the unit on your bed/mattress. As your flexibility increases, you may wish to graduate to a firm, flat surface.
    • An aggressive workout with Posture Pump® may temporarily cause soreness. If so, reduce the intensity and duration of your treatment.
    • Keep device out of reach of children at all times.

    WARM UP ROUTINE: Begin by slowly turning your head and neck side-to-side 5 times; then tilting your head and neck forward and backward 5 times; then leaning the head and neck side-to-side 5 times.

    • On a comfortable, firm surface, in a seated position, slide deflated unit against low back and buttocks.

    • While grasping the lower portion of the unit, gently lean your back and neck over deflated unit. Buttocks should hang off edge of lower unit; neck should fit comfortably into neck cradle. Move lower unit Elliptical Back Rocker™ slightly up or down, left or right, to locate the most comfortable and centered position for you.

    • While lying flat on unit with knees bent and feet firmly on the ground, begin to rock lower portion of Elliptical Back Rocker™ by rocking pelvis up and back toward belly button using abdominal muscles to lift buttocks. Then rock downward using back muscles, allowing your lower back and abdominal muscles to gently stretch over air cells and lowering buttocks to floor. Repeat this movement several times to conclude warm-up routine.

    Now that your warm-up is complete, it's time to move on to the actual Training Session!

    TRAINING SESSION INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. After warm-up routine, place deflated unit on a comfortable, firm surface. Deflate air cells by pushing the button on the pump and squeezing air cells. With Comfort Visor™ forehead restraint untangled at back of unit, slide and center unit under the back of your neck, snugly against your shoulders and upper back. Note that if you are not snug, comfortable, and centered on the inflated neck bladder or back bladders, or if it seems to inflate unevenly, completely deflate all air cells, remove Comfort Visor®, then re-center yourself on the unit and reapply Comfort Visor™.
    2. Center your neck on neck cradle measuring with index fingers.
    3. Apply Comfort Visor™ by centering it across your forehead. While holding it there with fingers, lightly tighten one side at a time until snug and centered. Allow it to slide back toward hairline as you pull all slack out of Comfort Visor™ will mold to the shape of your forehead as it slides back. Reposition until it feels secure and comfortable. Note: For smaller heads and shorter necks, locate Comfort Visor™ in forward slots. For larger size locate Comfort Visor™ in back slots.
    4. Hold back of unit down with tips of index fingers or thumbs and further tighten Comfort Visor™ if necessary.
    5. Press ends of Comfort Visor™ straps across the Velcro® forehead section. Comfort Visor™ should be as snug as possible without lifting up the back of the unit and may be tightened further after the first repetition. (Back of frame may lift slightly during application on some surfaces. THIS IS NORMAL.)
    6. Leaving neck pump on chest/stomach area for easy access, grasp the two hand pumps that work the lower unit; lowest air cell pump in your right hand, upper air cell pump in your left hand. (Squeeze each pump separately to confirm lowest air cell pump is in right hand.)
    7. Inflate lowest air cell with right hand pump to a firm, comfortable level, never to the point of pain. (Usually 1-5 complete pumps.)
    8. Inflate upper air cell with left hand pump to an equally comfortable level. (Usually 1-5 complete pumps.)
    9. Squeeze both pumps at the same time (Usually 1-3 more pumps.)
    10. Using your abdominal and pelvic muscles, gently rock back and forth 3-5 times, repeating actions from the final bullet point in the Warm-Up Routine.
    11. Deflate air cells by pushing down on both pump buttons at the same time.
    12. Repeat steps 7 through 11 several times, leaving unit inflated to a comfortable level on the last repetition.
    13. Keeping the back unit inflated to a comfortable level, make sure your neck is still centered on the neck cradle (use your index fingers to measure), and Comfort Visor™ should remain snug.
    14. Grasp the hand pump that operates the neck air cell(s) and slowly pump unit up to your own comfort level; never to the point of pain. (This is typically 1-7 complete pumps, but may vary by individual. Pump less times during first week of use. (Pump is equipped with automatic air release valve, limiting inflation.) Never cover up or block off open ends of hand pump.
    15. Wait 10 seconds, then release all air by pushing the manual air release button on the pump. Repeat this workout 10 to 15 times, leaving neck air cell(s) inflates at a comfortable level on last repetition.
    16. With all air cells now inflated to comfortable levels, allow your entire spine to stretch over inflated air cells, keeping your buttocks on the ground. Relax on inflated unit for 1 to 5 minutes on first session. Gradually work up to a maximum goal of 15 minutes  by adding a few minutes to each training session, or as directed by your Healthcare Professional. Inflate unit at lower levels the first week, thus reducing soreness commonly caused by aggressive workouts.
    17. Completely deflate all air cells (neck first),  release Velcro® straps from forehead, and remove Comfort Visor™. Gently bring knees to chest one at a time for 5 seconds each. Then bring both knees to chest and hold for 5 seconds. Gently roll off unit and on to your left or right side slowly and carefully without turning your head. When you are free from the unit and standing or sitting in an upright position, gently and slowly repeat warm-up routine (Begin by slowly turning your head and neck side-to-side 5 times; then tilting your head and neck forward and backward 5 times; then leaning the head and neck side-to-side 5 times) to acclimate your neck muscles to the weight of your head.
    18. Never rock unit while neck unit is inflated. 
    19. Keep unit near bed or night stand and repeat the above treatment daily for at least 3 times per week to help relieve tension, stress and fatigue and to reinforce your natural neck and back curves while lubricating the joints. Many users find that using Posture Pump® just before bedtime allows them to fall asleep more easily.

  • How Poor Posture Causes Neck Aches and Upper Back Pain

    Ever wake up with unexpected neck pain?  Find that your back or neck is practically screaming in pain by the time you’re done with a long day at work?  It’s not stress or your busy lifestyle that’s causing those aches and pains… It could be your posture.  Poor Posture Causes Neck Aches and Upper Back Pain.  That’s right – your mother’s reminders to sit up straight were actually some of the best ways to preserve your back and neck health.  Poor Posture is one of the most common causes of neck aches and  upper back pain.

    Since the neck and skull sit on top of the spine, the curvature of the spine can cause the head’s position to become askew. This causes considerable strain on the neck muscles, which in turn can contribute to neck aches, pains, and even chronic headaches.

    There are a number of muscles that make up the neck – and when these muscles are strained or become tight, they can cause Cervical and upper back pain, in addition to headaches.  These muscles include:

    • Scalene and suboccipital muscles (these help rotate the head)
    • Pectoralis minor muscles (these muscles can be found at the upper part of the chest)
    • Subscapularis muscles (larger muscles which are found around the shoulder joints)
    • Levator scapulae muscles (these muscles are located at the back and sides of the neck)

     

    More Info: Cervical Spine Anatomy and Neck Pain

    When alignment of the spine is off (for example, you’re slouching forward while sitting), this puts a considerable amount of pressure on your neck muscles. Continuous strain can lead to chronic neck and back pain – and the only solution to this kind of pain is to improve one’s posture.

    The most common posture that causes neck and back pain is when a person is sitting with their head and shoulders pushed forward.  This posture is most common when someone is sitting in front of a computer, with your head jutted forward to read the screen.  Since this posture is most common in the workplace, it’s important for people to remain aware of how they’re sitting, and to make corrections whenever possible.

    Posture Pump® specializes in neck and back-related pain products.  Posture Pump® products are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can help alleviate many symptoms caused by neck and back conditions. Posture Pump® shapes and restores the Cervical Curve, restores ranges of motion, and gets to the cause of neck and back pain stiffness fast!

    Posture Pump® Relieves Painful Neck and Back Stiffness, Headaches and Fatigue, Shapes & Restores the Proper Neck Curve, & Decompresses & Hydrates Compressed, Damaged Discs. Check out more details on our Back Pain Products and Neck Pain Products.

With one easy-to-use hand pump and uniquely-angled air cells, expansion and contraction (up and down motion) of the air cells creates alternating hydration of the spinal discs and joints.
          • When the air cells are left inflated for longer periods of time (15-20 min.), postural restoration occurs. Comfort Visor™ gently molds to the shape of the forehead (no chin or jaw contact/NO CHIN STRAP REQUIRED). The POSTURE PUMP® DUAL DISC HYDRATOR® Model (1400-D) does not hyper-extend the neck. Operating at moderate pressure levels, the “Dual” provides extremely comfortable disc decompression & hydration while reshaping the proper neck curve and upper back curves.

  • Cycling For Neck Aches and Back Pain: Tips for Prevention

    Biking is a great way to stay in shape and optimize cardiovascular performance. This popular exercise is especially attractive for individuals seeking an effective workout with lower impact than jogging or running.

    It’s a fact that indoor spinning classes have been on the rise for several years now.  According to Spynergy Consulting Services, indoor cycling classes are one of the top group exercises in North America and around the world. But whether you’re hitting the bike in a stylish fitness studio or out in nature, it’s important to be aware of the unwanted effects of cycling on the neck and lower back.

    During a recent survey of over 100 pro cyclist training camps, 45% (a vast majority) of individuals noted back pain specifically as a contributor to body wear & tear from cycling. In many cases, severe neck and back pain can inhibit individuals from engaging in physical activity altogether.

    Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of some helpful tips and recommendations to get you  back on the bike (and save your back!)

    • Make sure your bike is a good fit for you! Sitting on a bike that’e either too big or too small for a prolonged period of time can force your body into uncomfortable/unnatural positions, opening the gateway to chronic low back pain down the road. It’s important to select a bike that’s fitted as closely to your body proportions as possible.
    • Strengthen your core! A taut and toned core is a great by-product of regular cycling. However, beginners who may not be used to a rigorous abdominal workout tend to get fatigued more quickly, and are thereby more prone to back strain and even potential disc herniation. You can help to counteract this by doing some simple core exercises, 2-3 times a week, intermittently with cycling. As your core gets stronger, the risk of low back injury decreases.
    • Proper Positioning! How you’re seated on your bike is imperative to avoid neck and back pain. Your back should be arched, rather than in a forward leaning or “swaybacked” position, which, if you happen to ride over a few bumps, ultimately pushes your back even further forward, compressing the lumbar spine.
    • Stretch, Stretch, Stretch! Taking the time to stretch both before and after cycling (or any workout) is key to maintaining good flexibility and avoid stiffness/discomfort later.

     

    Posture Pump® products were designed to alleviate painful back and neck stiffness. The Posture Pump® Elliptical Back Rocker (Model 2000) is truly one of their most versatile products, as it fits under the back in four positions: lumbosacral, lumbar, thoracolumbar, and thoracic, to bring relief to specific problem areas.
    Additionally, the Posture Pump® Dual Disc Hydrator (Model 1400-D) is a terrific preventative tool against neck and upper back pain

    Final Thoughts: Verify your bike is the right fit, build up your core for improved endurance, arch your back & avoid leaning too far forward on your bike, and finally, prevent and/or relieve painful low back stiffness via regular stretching and incorporating Posture Pump® into your daily routine! Following these primary tips will help to make your next ride anything but a pain in the back!

  • Avoid Neck Pain from Playing Video Games

    Gamer Pro Tips – Sit Up Straight to Avoid Neck Pain from Playing Video Games

    Do you get neck stiffness or soreness after playing video games for long periods of time? Do you notice yourself leaning forward towards the TV and looking up at the screen? Ever notice your shoulders are rounded while gripping the controller? Has it crossed your mind to have good sitting posture or do neck exercises while playing games? Assuming the answers to these questions would be “No.”

    It might not be immediately obvious from watching e-sports stars in their professional performances, but the life of a pro gamer can actually be quite physically taxing.  E-Sports ergonomics expert Frank Maas tips for improving your physical approach to gaming includes: the correct sitting position, screen height, and taking breaks often with proper stretching and exercises to keep healthy. You don’t need to be a pro gamer to have these neck and back issues.  The everyday gamer can be impacted.

    Gaming Positions:  There are 2 really common gaming positions for gamers. The “couch slouch”, where the gamer is just chilling with feet up on the coffee table and slouched back into the couch. Then, there’s the “full-on” position – usually in the heat of an FPS battle – that involves leaning forward, elbows on knees, head tilted forward, and all attention and focused on the screen.

    Many gamer's play video games using a game chair or on the bean bag. Some have found that using the gaming chair has improved their posture and eliminates the forward head and rounded shoulders position.

    Good Posture is Key.  Poor Posture is one of the most common causes of neck pain. Be sure that you are sitting back and leaning forward. When the knees are crossed, the elbows are usually on top of them while the head will be looking up at the screen. After hours of this position, your neck and other areas of your body probably will be stiff or sore from lack of movements.

    Gaming chairs can provide a health benefit of sitting correctly and reduce neck tension or strain. Even if you don’t have a gaming chair, sitting up properly will help reduce any neck strain.

    Posture Pump® specializes in neck and back-related pain products.  Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, restores ranges of motion, and gets to the cause of neck pain and stiffness fast!

    Neck Exercises During Game Loads. Doing some simple neck exercises while games are loading can help.  You can do a neck workout and help your neck to a better neck posture while playing video games.

    These are quick neck exercises you can do within a minute or two.

    • Chin tucks
    • Shoulder rolls, shrugs and blade pinches
    • Head range of motions
    • Head rotations
    • Neck extensor stretches

     

    It’s even better if you can do the chin tuck while playing the game. By bringing your chin back towards the chair or the wall behind you, you can strengthen the front and stretch the back of your neck muscles. Combining any of the neck exercises will help keep neck tension from building when playing.

    Final Tip: Don’t clench your teeth or let your shoulders rise towards your ears when playing.

    These motions will make your head and neck tensed.  Have fun playing games and don’t forget to do neck exercises!

  • 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.

    Dental professionals can get relief from work related neck and back pain with Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators - they help correct stiff and poor posture.  Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, which is vital to maintaining good posture. Posture Pump® products are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can help alleviate the symptoms caused by neck and back conditions. Posture Pump® shapes and restores the cervical curve, restores ranges of motion, and gets to the cause of neck and back pain stiffness fast!
