Ergonomics for dental staff
Dr. S. kindly sent me the link to this website. She attended a lecture that was very helpful to her. Back issues are common everywhere, but especially among dental personnel. (Perhaps, Dr. S. can leave a comment or write a post that elaborates on the lecture?)
In the past, I have found a book "The Back Doctor", by Dr. Hamilton Hall, excellent, which I used to issue as reading to all new staff. The link above, is to a newer version of the book, which I have not read, but you can see that Chapter's "medical experts" have included it in the "trusted advisor health program". With his emphasis on exercise, he really can't be wrong.
