From firefighters to nurses,
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. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is ready
to help suppress the power of work-related stress as
much as possible. Brooks back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Soft Health and Healing Clinic. You can, too! Together, we’ll 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 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 get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uncomfortable
relationships, extreme academic pressures, and disappointing
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 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
discovered that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors
caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ reporting
that chronic low back pain disrupted their work. (4) It
is an unusual person whose job is pure happiness
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Brooks
chiropractor is here for you.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE STRESSED
Chiropractors like yours at Soft Health and Healing Clinic see stressed-out
patients. One study found that more than 30% of
chiropractic patients described themselves as moderately
to severely stressed. Over 50% felt stress played a moderate or greater role
in their current pain. 71% stated
that it would be beneficial if their chiropractic care included stress-coping strategies. 44% were interested in taking a course to improve their stress
management skills. (5) Chiropractic care is available to all,
regardless of age or profession. Your Brooks chiropractor is trained
to diagnose the physical cause of back pain and neck pain and to correlate any
work-related stress that may be contributing to your Brooks
back pain and neck pain. The discussion of how to better cope with stress via lifestyle modifications,
exercise, etc., helps many Brooks back pain and neck pain patients improve
with the Brooks chiropractic treatment plan.
