Brooks Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

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

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 interfered with 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.
