From firefighters to nurses,
from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our experience of
pain and often prompts times of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is here
to help suppress the power of work-related stress as
much as possible. Ottawa back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider. 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 work 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 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 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 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 Ottawa
chiropractor is by your side.
