Oxford back pain and neck pain patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to Satterwhite 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 via pain. None of us is immune 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 get job-related stress. The pressures of grades and friends and news and learning issues 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 set college students up 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 mentioned. More stress is linked 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.
