From nurses to firefighters,
from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It influences our sense of
pain and often triggers sessions of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Disc Centers Of America is here
to help suppress the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Buffalo, NY back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Disc Centers Of America. You can, too! Together, we’ll handle
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It reveals itself through
pain. None of us is immune
to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and going to
school on the path to adulthood. Along the way, kids experience
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news
and learning issues get to them. Adolescents get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uneasy
relationships, extreme academic pressures, and unsatisfactory
school lives may all put college students at risk
for chronic low back pain. (1) 11% of firefighters reported moderate to
extremely severe stress on the job. 40% described
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most mentioned.
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 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 interfered with their work. (4) It’s an unusual person whose job is pure happiness
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Buffalo, NY
chiropractor is by your side.
