This continuing education course is designed to educate dental professionals about efficient sitting positions and movements that assist with minimizing occupational pain and/or injury. As part of this course, we will examine why many practitioners need to change how they sit, discuss common postures/habits that contribute to lifelong pain and the consequences of not changing.
Please note this is Part I of a two-part series. Practice in Motion: Part II - 6 Components of Posture will discuss the 6 components of posture and how to recognize structurally stable positions when providing care.
