Burlington and Hamilton Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

Together, we’ll handle work-stress and back and neck pain.

WORK-RELATED STRESS

Work-related stress messes with us. It reveals itself via 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 journey to adulthood. Along the way, kids have 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, uneasy 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 stress on the job. 40% reported musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most noted. 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 stressed them out more. (3) Researchers discovered 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.
