WORK-RELATED STRESS

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.
