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 elicits bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic is here
to help suppress the power of work-related stress whenever possible. 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 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. (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 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 Oxford
chiropractor is by your side.
