From firefighters to nurses,
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 times of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is here
to help suppress the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. Vancouver back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Vancouver Spine Care Centre. You can, too! Together, we will manage
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention via pain. None of us is resistant
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 get
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and friends and news
and learning problems get to them. Adolescents get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uncomfortable
relationships, extreme academic pressures, and disappointing
school lives may all put college students at risk
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 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’s an unusual person whose job is pure joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Vancouver
chiropractor is here for you.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE STRESSED
Chiropractors like yours at Vancouver Spine Care Centre see stressed-out
patients. One study found that more than 30% of
chiropractic patients described themselves as moderately
to severely stressed. Over 50% felt stress had a moderate or greater effect on their current pain. 71% stated
that it would be useful if their chiropractic care had
some stress-coping strategies. 44% were interested in participating
in a course to improve their stress
management skills. (5) Chiropractic care is offered to all,
regardless of age or profession. Your Vancouver chiropractor is prepared
to diagnose the physical cause of back pain and neck pain and to correlate any
work-related stress that may be contributing to your Vancouver
back pain and neck pain. The discussion of how to more
successfully cope with stress via lifestyle changes,
exercise, etc., helps many Vancouver back pain and neck pain patients recover
with the Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan.
