From firefighters to nurses,
from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our sense of
pain and often triggers times of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Watertown Wellness Center is here
to help squash the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. Watertown back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
Watertown Wellness Center. You can, too! Together, we will manage
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 path to adulthood. Along the way, kids have
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news
and learning issues 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 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 mentioned.
More stress correlated with 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 stressed them out more. (3) Researchers
found 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 Watertown
chiropractor is by your side.

management skills. (5) Chiropractic care is offered to all,
regardless of age or profession. Your Watertown chiropractor is prepared
to diagnose the physical cause of back pain and neck pain and to correlate any
