From nurses to firefighters,
from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our sense of
pain and often elicits bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Minster Chiropractic Center is ready
to help squash the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. Minster back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
Minster Chiropractic Center. You can, too! Together, we’ll deal with
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention via pain. None of us is immune
to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and going to
school on the journey to adulthood. Along the way, kids get
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and friends and news
and learning issues get to them. Adolescents find themselves
with low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uncomfortable
relationships, extreme academic pressures, and disappointing
school lives may all put college students at risk
for chronic low back pain. (1) 11% of firefighters reported moderate to
extremely severe stress on the job. 40% described
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most noted.
More stress related 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’ reporting
that chronic low back pain disrupted their work. (4) It
is an unusual person whose job is pure happiness
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Minster
chiropractor is here for you.
