Dentists and Dental Professionals Continue to Switch to the Bambach Saddle Seat
“If you do not create change, change will create you.” ~Unknown.
As a dental professional, you are often up and down throughout the day as you treat your patients. Over the course of your day, you will likely have to bend over and slouch at odd angles, and after a while you might find that you have aches and pains in your body as a result. In fact, as many as 80% of dental professionals suffer from lower back, neck, and shoulder pain. Many of them also suffer from headaches related to these pains. If this is you, then it’s time to make a change! But how exactly can you do that? At Hager Worldwide, we can assure you that the Bambach Saddle Seat can help.
Why Make the Change?
Many dentists and dental hygienists have made the change to the Bambach Saddle Seat, and the two biggest reasons why they have done so is to solve a problem and to avoid a problem before it occurs.
Solve a Problem in Your Back, Neck, and Shoulders
According to a recent publication from the A.D.A. Dr. Bethany Valachi writes:
“Practicing dentistry often involves being in uncomfortable postures and performing repetitive hand motions for long periods of time. As a result, 40-60% of dental professionals suffer from work-related musculoskeletal issues, such as low back pain.
“Since the pandemic started, team members began to report additional symptoms, things like headaches, mental fatigue, dehydration and elevated levels of physical exhaustion,” said Dr. Bethany Valachi.
This issue is very common in the dental industry and causes daily pains, ends careers short, and can even affect life outside of work for many of these professionals. Solving these problems before they worsen or change you permanently is so important.”
Avoid a Problem in Your Back, Neck, and Shoulders
As we have already mentioned, up to 80% of dental professionals suffer from these injuries. If this is not you now, there’s a good chance it will be you eventually. It is best to take preventative measures now and avoid a problem before it has the chance to occur and affect you long-term. Not only can this make your day-to-day life more painful if it happens, but it can in fact end your career prematurely if the problem is chronic. 70% of all our general population suffer from back, shoulder or neck disorders – so it’s not a question of if, but when.
We, and you, as dental professionals go to great lengths to educate and encourage our patients about preventive measures to take for their own oral and systemic health for their long-term wellness. Maybe we should take our own advice for ourselves beyond the oral cavity for a better quality of life both in and out of our own practices. After all, if we don’t take care of ourselves, how can we take care of anything or anyone?
