Ashburn Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

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

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.
