McHenry Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

From firefighters to nurses, from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related stress is stressful. It influences our sense of pain and often triggers sessions of back pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Spengel Chiropractic is here to help squash the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. McHenry back pain and neck pain patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to Spengel Chiropractic. You can, too! Together, we will manage work-stress and back and neck pain.

WORK-RELATED STRESS

Work-related stress messes with us. It reveals itself through pain. None of us is immune to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and attending school on the way to adulthood. Along the way, kids get 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 set college students up 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 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 stressed them out more. (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 is a rare person whose job is pure joy and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your McHenry chiropractor is by your side.
