Dental Hygiene Work: Pain is NOT in the Job Description
Musculoskeletal disorders can end careers ~ Prevention is key
Pain in the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck, and back are
common among dental hygienists. However, when ignored, these
symptoms can become persistent and severe enough that they can
end a career and make daily living miserable. No one should be
required to do a job that causes pain. Relatively simple changes to
work practices can prevent and alleviate musculoskeletal disorders
