From firefighters to nurses,
from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our experience of
pain and often prompts sessions of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Apple Country Chiropractic is here
to help squash the power of work-related stress as
much as possible. Williamson back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
Apple Country Chiropractic. You can, too! Together, we’ll manage
work-stress and back and neck pain.
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.
More stress is linked to more such symptoms. (2)
Trash collectors reported back pain issues – upper back
pain 89%, shoulder pain 81%, wrist/hand pain 79%, neck pain 68% - which stressed them out more. (3) Researchers
found that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors
contributed to 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating
that chronic low back pain disrupted their work. (4) It’s an unusual person whose job is pure happiness
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Williamson
chiropractor is by your side.
