Carrolltown Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

From nurses to firefighters, from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related stress is stressful. It affects our sense of pain and often triggers sessions of back pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is here to help squash the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Carrolltown back pain and neck pain patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. You can, too! Together, we’ll handle work-stress and back and neck pain.

WORK-RELATED STRESS

Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention 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 path to adulthood. Along the way, kids experience job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news and learning problems get to them. Adolescents get 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 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 contributed to 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ reporting that chronic low back pain disrupted their work. (4) It’s an unusual person whose job is pure happiness and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Carrolltown chiropractor is by your side.
