Avoid Low Back Pain
Dimensions of Dental Hygiene
"Low back pain (LBP) is a common musculoskeletal disorder among oral health professionals and is often associated with overuse and strain of muscles. Appropriate back support, such as a lumbar roll that maintains the low back curve, helps reduces the occurrence of spine-related musculoskeletal injuries. However, other factors such as prolonged sitting, sitting with poor posture, sitting with uneven pressure, and twisting the spine while sitting or standing, may also contribute to this disorder."
