From nurses to firefighters,
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. OrthoIllinois 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
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. You can, too! Together, we will manage
work-stress and back and neck pain.
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.
