2018 Annual Session Conference

Pain, Fitness and Dentistry: My Story from Dental Student in Pain to American Ninja Warrior Athlete

May 5, 2018 12:20pm ‐ May 5, 2018 2:20pm


In this lecture, I will share my story of a dental student in severe musculoskeletal pain, how I overcame this pain, and continued on with my fitness during my dental career to become an American Ninja Warrior athlete. I will share research about how poor positioning and lack of body movement/exercise can contribute to these musculoskeletal ailments, and how these ailments affect our careers and quality of life. I will give key components of an effective fitness plan and how to integrate them into the dental workday.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify how lack of movement or “exercise" contributes to musculoskeletal pain.
  • Recognize the key components of an effective fitness routine.
  • Identify the most important movements/exercises for musculoskeletal health to be able to put into practice.
