From nurses to firefighters,
from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It influences our experience of
pain and often triggers times of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is here
to help squash the power of work-related stress as
much as possible. Ashburn back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn. You can, too! Together, we will handle
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It reveals itself via
pain. None of us is immune
to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s work is being a kid and attending
school on the way to adulthood. Along the way, kids experience
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, uneasy
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 stress on the job. 40% reported
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most noted.
More stress related 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
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’s a rare person whose job is pure joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Ashburn
chiropractor is here for you.
