From nurses to firefighters,
from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our experience of
pain and often prompts bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. 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 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.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE STRESSED
Chiropractors like yours at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 played a moderate or greater role
in their current pain. 71% stated
that it would be beneficial if their chiropractic care included stress-coping strategies. 44% were interested in participating
in a course to enhance their stress
management skills. (5) Chiropractic care is offered to all,
regardless of age or profession. Your Eugene chiropractor is trained
to diagnose the physical cause of back pain and neck pain and to correlate any
work-related stress that may be influencing your Eugene
back pain and neck pain. The discussion of how to more
successfully deal with stress via lifestyle changes,
exercise, etc., helps many Eugene back pain and neck pain patients recover
with the Eugene chiropractic treatment plan.
