ABSTRACT

Stomatologists present a high risk of musculoskeletal symptoms at the level neck level. Stomatology-specific manoeuvres require high precision, which calls for a flexed and rotated posture of the cervical spine. This position of the cervical spine leads to a high static load in the neck region which through high duration and repetitive neck movement can generate painful symptomatology in the cervical region, accompanied by muscle disequilibrium or cervical instability. Neck pain has become a serious health issue, especially amongst stomatologists. The evaluation of the neck disability index provides information about the way in which neck pain affects the capacity of managing everyday life.
