Back pain is a very common malady for dentists. We spend our careers bent in uncomfortable positions, often for hours on end. In the long term, it can cost us mobility and terrible pain. Muscles can shorten selectively to create tightness and limited movement. In addition, arthritis can be exacerbated by this sort of problem.
Constant exercise and stretching is something that is critical for good back health. I know that when I had problems, I went to Andy Haas www.andyhealth.com for treatment. He is an exercise specialist and is an expert in massage. There were time where it was very painful for me to move and Andy truly helped me. I strongly recommend him to whoever needs his help.
