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 times of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Hutter Chiropractic Office is ready
to help suppress the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Groton back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
Hutter Chiropractic Office. You can, too! Together, we will handle
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention via pain. None of us is resistant
to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s work is being a kid and attending
school on the journey to adulthood. Along the way, kids experience
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, uncomfortable
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 correlated with 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 translated
into higher psychological demands for them. (3) Researchers
found that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors
caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating
that chronic low back pain disrupted their work. (4) It’s a rare person whose job is pure joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Groton
chiropractor is by your side.
