From firefighters to nurses,
from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It influences our experience of
pain and often elicits times of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is here
to help suppress the impact of work-related stress as
much as possible. Colorado Springs back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. 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 through pain. None of us is resistant
to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s work is being a kid and going to
school on the journey to adulthood. Along the way, kids experience
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news
and learning issues get to them. Adolescents find themselves
with low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uneasy
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 work-related stress. 40% described
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most mentioned.
More stress related to more such symptoms. (2)
Trash collectors said they had 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
caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating
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 Colorado Springs
chiropractor is here for you.
