Ergonomics Assessments

"I NOW CONSTANTLY REMIND MYSELF TO SIT UP STRAIGHT!"

Katrina did an ergonomic assessment of our dental office in June 2018. She educated all of us at a staff meeting, then she evaluated each staff member while each person worked. As a result, we purchased ergonomic chairs, ergonomic foot rests, moved computer monitors to better positions, etc. We still have work to do but it is a good start. Katrina also gave each person a written report of her evaluations and gave all of us exercises to do. Her enthusiasm for good ergonomics is contagious. I now constantly remind myself to sit up straight! I recommend her highly.

Posture Correction

The body cannot hope to sustain the excessive and static load we place on it without strengthening it. The neck and shoulders will try to compensate for a weak back until they fall short of the demand and also fail, resulting in pain and injury. 

Learn target zone exercises that specifically relieve the overworked muscles and strengthen those that support proper posture.

Strength Training

One of the best ways to prevent injury is to be proactive about strength training. My one on one personal training provides an opportunity to learn how to strengthen your body by learning which exercises are best for dental professionals, how to do them correctly, learn which equipment works which muscles, receive real time feedback to correct form, learn which exercises not to do and how to progress to become your best version of you!

I also provide goal specific nutritional guidance. We know that getting and staying fit is as much about eating clean and efficiently, as it is activity. Let me help you learn to eat to achieve your goals!

Strengthen the body to build a foundation that can meet our demands.

Ergonomics

This X-ray shows “Tech Neck” or deformed cervical vertebrae as a result of chronic leaning forward and looking down. The neck is supposed to be rounded and concave, not straight. Practicing hygiene without ergonomics and extensive use of cell phones is a bad combination resulting in a lot of pain. Need to learn better ergonomics? I can help!
