#15 Dr Anikó Ball on Posture and Wellness

Pain is the bodies way of telling us to stop doing something. We learn early on touching fire hurts so we don’t do it any longer. Occupational musculoskeletal pain on the other hand is something we tend to take for granted, something we live with and ignore.

You cannot ignore it forever. For many dentists, musculoskeletal pain is what encourages them to change career or retire early. But what if we can change this. Stop the pain and prevent the damage allowing a long prosperous career or perhaps a more efficent one leading you to your goals quicker.

#4 – Pilates and Posture with Dr Jean Wu

It’s no secret that this wonderful profession we are a part of has a dark side. I can list a number of dentists who’ve been forced to step back. In just the middle of their career. Shoulder, back and neck pain have held them back from their potential.

Dr Jean Wu is no stranger to this. Just two years after graduation she found herself lying on the floor, wondering if she’ll walk again. Fortunately that fear was short lived however the effects of the slipped disk she experienced were not.
