From nurses to firefighters,
from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our sense of
pain and often prompts times of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is ready
to help squash the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. You can, too! Together, we will manage
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 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 disappointing
school lives may all set college students up
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 mentioned.
More stress is linked to 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
contributed to 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating
that chronic low back pain disrupted their work. (4) It
is an unusual person whose job is pure happiness
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Baton Rouge
chiropractor is by your side.
