WORK-RELATED STRESS

Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention through pain. None of us is resistant to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and going to school on the way to adulthood. Along the way, kids experience job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news and learning problems get to them. Adolescents get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uneasy relationships, extreme academic pressures, and disappointing school lives may all set college students up for chronic low back pain. (1) 11% of firefighters reported moderate to extremely severe stress on the job. 40% reported musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most noted.
