A longitudinal multicohort study was conducted to evaluate the impact of task training on upper-extremity musculoskeletal discomfort in health professional students. Differential effects on pain and grip strength were noted in dental hygiene students as compared to OT students. This study validates that repetitive task training has a negative impact on health and illuminates a need for development and implementation of preventive interventions for dental hygiene students.
