It influences our sense of pain and often elicits bouts of back pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain.

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

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.
