From nurses to firefighters,
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 bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Johnson Chiropractic is here
to help suppress the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Richmond back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
Johnson Chiropractic. 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 resistant
to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and going to
school on the path to adulthood. Along the way, kids get
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news
and learning problems get to them. Adolescents find themselves
with low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uncomfortable
relationships, extreme academic pressures, and unsatisfactory
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% reported
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most noted.
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 joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Richmond
chiropractor is here for you.
