From firefighters to nurses,
from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our sense of
pain and often triggers sessions of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is ready
to help squash the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. West Des Moines back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa. You can, too! Together, we’ll 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 going to
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 disappointing
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 noted.
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 stressed them out more. (3) Researchers
found that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors
caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating
that chronic low back pain interfered with 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 West Des Moines
chiropractor is here for you.
