From firefighters to nurses,
from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our experience of
pain and often triggers bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Pflugerville Wellness Center is ready
to help squash the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. Pflugerville back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Pflugerville Wellness Center. You can, too! Together, we’ll 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 job is being a kid and attending
school on the path to adulthood. Along the way, kids get
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news
and learning problems get to them. Adolescents find themselves
with low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uneasy
relationships, extreme academic pressures, and unsatisfactory
school lives may all put college students at risk
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 noted.
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
caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating
that chronic low back pain interfered with their work. (4) It’s an unusual person whose job is pure joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Pflugerville
chiropractor is by your side.
