About our speaker - Dr Anikó Ball B.D.Sc.(Melb); Dip. Clin. Hyp.; Adv. Dip. Alexander Studies; Certified Teacher of the Alexander Technique
Practising for over thirty years, Anikó suffered frequently from neck, back and shoulder pain. Doctors and physical therapists offered short-term symptom relief without identifying her condition as work related.
Fortunately, the Inner Ergonomic principles of the Alexander Technique helped her to recognize and change harmful work-postures; she learned about biomechanical design and got well. After undertaking a 1600-hour training course, Anikó founded “Optimum Dental Posture” to save her colleagues from suffering chronic pain.
Anikó has collaborated in a pilot study at the Melbourne Dental School, “Improving Oral Health Students’ Physical and Mental Wellbeing”, to show the benefits of Inner Ergonomics training. Her vision is reducing the incidence of occupational chronic pain in dentistry by introducing Inner Ergonomics training in the undergraduate curriculum. She has presented at Australian Dental Association Congresses and CPD courses.
