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 elicits bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is ready
to help squash the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Sitka back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka. You can, too! Together, we’ll handle
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention through pain. None of us is resistant
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 have
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, 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 work-related stress. 40% reported
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most mentioned.
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
discovered 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
is a rare person whose job is pure happiness
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Sitka
chiropractor is here for you.
