Dr. M. Gnanasekaran, Dr. Jay Vijay Sonavane

Abstract: Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between the neck pain and hand grip strength in final year and internship undergraduate dental students, due to the impact of poor ergonomics. Objectives: To evaluate the level of neck pain among dental students using Neck pain disability index. To evaluate the hand grip strength among dental students using Baseline hand dynamometer. To evaluate the impact of the symptoms of neck pain and hand grip due to ergonomics amongst current final year and internship undergraduate dental students. Methodology: 70 students were selected for the study according to the inclusion criteria, NDI was used to the samples to evaluate the neck pain and BASELINE DYNAMOMETER was used to samples to evaluate the hand grip strength. The subjects had undergone assessment for 2 weeks. Then the collected data was divided on the basis of presence of cervical pain, hand dominance and gender. Then data was tabulated and interpreted by using statistical analysis principles. Result: After tabulation and statistical analysis, according to Karl Pearson correlation coefficient, there is showed significant changes in relationship between the neck pain and hand grip strength in final year and internship undergraduate dental students due to poor ergonomics. Conclusion: The conclusion of this study indicates that there is the relationship between the neck pain and hand grip strength in final year and internship undergraduate dental students due to poor ergonomics. Thus, proving the alternate hypothesis and rejecting the null hypothesis.
