Watertown Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

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

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 contributed to 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.

CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE STRESSED

(5) Chiropractic care is offered to all, regardless of age or profession.
