Neck pain case study

Dental Assistant: Neck Pain

Name: D.M., Occupation: Dental Assistant


D.M. had neck pain resulting from work. When asked by her dentist employer to sit on a Bambach Saddle Seat (which was already in use in the surgery), she discussed the idea with her Osteopath, who said that it was a good idea.

Introduction to the Saddle Seat
D.M. was instructed how to adjust the tilt and height of the seat and how to assume the best posture for work.

After she became used to the new position, D.M. found the Saddle Seat beneficial. Her neck did not hurt even after a whole day’s work when using the Bambach Saddle Seat. D.M. said:

‘I like the way your legs are with your feet on the floor; it is a comfortable way to sit, but you have to get used to it.’
