Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is ready to help squash the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Eugene back pain and neck pain patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic. You can, too! Together, we will deal with work-stress and back and neck pain.

WORK-RELATED STRESS

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 attending school on the way to adulthood. Along the way, kids have job-related stress. The pressures of grades and friends and news and learning issues get to them. Adolescents find themselves with low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uneasy relationships, extreme academic pressures, and unsatisfactory 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% described musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most mentioned. More stress correlated with 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 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 Eugene chiropractor is by your side.
