Repetitive Strain Injuries in Dentistry


Dentists suffer from Repetitive Strain Injuries more than the general public. Much of the literature that appears on this guide is peer reviewed, evidence based literature regarding the etiology, pathology, symptoms, prevention (exercises, instrumentation, illumination and office design) and treatment of repetitive strain injuries.

This guide was originally developed by Laurie Kagetsu for her practicum project at Dentistry Library University of Toronto. We welcome any comments or suggestions. This guide is maintained by current Dentistry Library Staff.
