From nurses to firefighters,
from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our experience of
pain and often prompts bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is here
to help suppress the impact of work-related stress as
much as possible. Largo back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Hollstrom & Associates Inc. You can, too! Together, we will deal with
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 journey to adulthood. Along the way, kids have
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and friends 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 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 correlated with 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
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’s an unusual person whose job is pure joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Largo
chiropractor is here for you.
