From nurses to firefighters,
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. Chiropractic Associates is here
to help squash the impact of work-related stress as
much as possible. Preston back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Chiropractic Associates. You can, too! Together, we’ll manage
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It reveals itself through
pain. None of us is immune
to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and going to
school on the way 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 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 translated
into higher psychological demands for them. (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
is a rare person whose job is pure joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Preston
chiropractor is by your side.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE STRESSED
Chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Associates see stressed-out
patients. One study stated that more than 30% of
chiropractic patients described themselves as moderately
to severely stressed. Over 50% felt stress had a moderate or greater effect on their current pain. 71% stated
that it would be helpful if their chiropractic care included stress-coping strategies. 44% were interested in taking a class to enhance their stress
management skills. (5) Chiropractic care is offered to all,
regardless of age or profession. Your Preston chiropractor is prepared
to diagnose the physical cause of back pain and neck pain and to correlate any
work-related stress that may be contributing to your Preston
back pain and neck pain. The discussion of how to better cope with stress via lifestyle modifications,
exercise, etc., helps many Preston back pain and neck pain patients recover
with the Preston chiropractic treatment plan.
