Dentist's Memo

Heal Thyself

If you’re hunched over working on patient records on a tablet or desktop — or working on patients’ themselves — you may experience lower-back[1] or musculoskeletal pain[2]. Ergonomic-related injuries are already the No. 1 cause of early retirement in dentists.[3]

Studies from Cornell and Duke Universities found four in 10 practitioners complaining weekly of issues, including problems isolated to the right wrists[4]. Higher pain and discomfort rates were reported by female staff in these studies, correlating with greater time spent on computer tasks compared to their male counterparts.

Experts believe most healthcare offices simply are not aware they need to consider ergonomic issues when deploying workstations.

Here are tips to keep yourself pain-free:

  • Check the workstation where you enter patient information for proper placement.
  • Work on posture and patient positioning in your exam rooms.
  • Get treatments for musculoskeletal injuries as soon as possible.
