Many ways dental professionals suffer from bad posture:
Lumbo-pelvic Hip complex disorder or anterior pelvic tilt due to prolong sitting and head forward posture which is a habitually induced in our profession. what else , well how about TMJ! posture is such an overlooked contributor to TMJ disorder.
How does bad posture affect the TMJ? the answer is Malalignment Syndrome. And that is one of the take home key points of this CE. I am not going to spoil it but you will be enlightened to how little credit posture have been given when it comes to clenching and TMD syndromes.
Prolonged hours of sitting causes muscle imbalance in one of the major joints in our body called the pelvis. This imbalance in turn is the main culprit of pelvis misalignment in forward tilted position. Furthermore, the rest of our back can end up having to compensate for it. Ultimately, our brain and our nervous system want our eyes to be level with the ground– it’s an important part of our balance system, and how we orient ourselves towards the world.
Of course, now our spine is out of its normal positioning in other areas as well, which in turn can cause neck and back pain. Our muscles end up having to work harder than they’re supposed to, so they can go into a protective spasm. These muscle spasms, in turn, can trigger all sorts of other symptoms, such as headache and TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder.
Our bodies function best when all of the joints move in proper alignment. For the head, neck, shoulders and jaw, this means the ears should be held vertically in line with the spine and shoulders. But some people develop a habit of holding their heads forward of the shoulders. Known as the headforward posture, this is one of the most frequently observed types of bad posture and the one most likely to contribute to TMJ disorder. This posture puts excessive strain on the muscles and joints in the back of the neck and increases tension in the upper trapezius muscle. Since these muscles connect with and influence the activity of the jaw muscles, TMJ disorder is likely to occur along with the head forward postures.
Therefore, a key solution in the treatment of TMJ disorder is to, in fact, correct your posture.
Fortunately, posture exercises that retrain, stretch and strengthen your muscles are simple to do. Doing these exercises regularly will help you develop body awareness and improve your ability to move in proper alignment and maintain a healthy posture.
Research demonstrates that correction of TMJ dysfunction requires postural correction of the head and cervical spine.
During the course of this CE you will leave with knowledge about how human kinetic chain is integrated and how you can reverse bad postural habits by simple exercises to minimize and posture awareness to minimize the effect of misaligned joints related to muscle imbalance. ,
