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 prompts bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is ready
to help squash the impact of work-related stress as
much as possible. Manchester back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries. You can, too! Together, we will handle
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It reveals itself via
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 friends and news
and learning problems 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 stress on the job. 40% reported
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most mentioned.
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 translated
into higher psychological demands for them. (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 interfered with their work. (4) It’s an unusual person whose job is pure joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Manchester
chiropractor is by your side.
