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 job is being a kid and going to school on the journey 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 get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uncomfortable relationships, extreme academic pressures, and unsatisfactory school lives may all set college students up for chronic low back pain.
