Thank you for the On the Ball exercises! I use the strengthening/stretching routine, and it works!
Cheryl Mitchell-McCarthy, RDH (verified owner) –
I started doing the exercises and have been noticing improvement in less than 1 week. In physical therapy they were having me do just about all the exercises you recommend that dentists should avoid. Now I can understand why the exercises were so painful. Finally, something that helps!!

I am a 53-year-old Dentist, in private practice for over 26 years. I’m also a distance biker, swimmer, and formally a power lifter. As many of you reading this know, dentistry gets harder after you’ve been doing it for 20+ years… Not technically, but physically.
Turns out my normal exercise routine has been simply exacerbating my neck and shoulder pain. After a short time on Bethany’s new program of muscle endurance exercises and stretching, I already see marked improvement.
My only regret is that I did not find this information sooner.

The exercises that Dr. Valachi covers have been very helpful to me in strengthening the essential muscles needed to deliver effective dental care. I also found it useful that she covers which exercises will exacerbate existing muscle imbalances so you do not worsen them.

This is a wonderful course. It details the muscle imbalances common in our profession and provides a manageable strengthening and endurance routine combined with stretches for optimal health and prevention of neck, low and upper back pain. Dr Valachi understands the biomechanics of our profession and she has really put together fitness routine that will prevent musculoskeletal disorders. This is such a beneficial CE. It’s like a professional gift for yourself!

I have been practising dentistry for 20+ years and like many colleagues have severe upper back and neck stiffness. This exercise routine really helps stretch and strengthen the appropriate muscles and has helped me in my day to day practice. It is also useful to know what exercises or workouts can make things worse.

I attended Bethany’s ergonimics course years ago and did not inves in myself at that time. I should have purchased this set of educational DVD’s and online courses then. I have been practicing dental hygiene over 26 years. I have neck pain and seek care from chiropractors, massage therapists and more. If I had done the stretches and exercises along my career I am sure I’d be in much better shape. I am now the proud owner of many of her courses and I am using them. Within 2 weeks of doing the stretches and exercises I am so much better. The chiropractor hardly had to make an adjustment to my neck and back today. I am so glad I made the investment in these programs. Thank you Bethany.

I’ve been in practice for 39 years and endured worsening neck and shoulder pain for years. On the Ball Home Exercise Course greatly improved the pain right away. I had previously read the book, Practice Dentistry Pain-Free and reviewing the book, I also started doing the recommended 30 minutes of cardio exercise 4+ times a week. The combination of those has helped me to live pain free.
