Maintaining Healthy, Pain-free Posture for the Dental Professional


Injury resulting from repetitive use in the dental professional and office staff can result in significant pain and loss of work, perhaps shortening an otherwise long fulfilling career. Through mindful awareness, the body can literally retrain its response to repetitive stress. Breathing, stretching and strengthening key muscle groups to better support and release tension will lead the dental professional and seated office staff to freedom in the body, the mind and the spirit.
