September 26, 2017

Stress messes with lifestyle, sometimes in the subtlest of ways. Stress may keep you awake at night. Stress may make you forgetful. Easley stress may provoke Easley back pain. Young Chiropractic may contribute to the relief of stress-related Easley back pain by acknowledging its effect and directing Easley chiropractic patients to ways they can use to control their stress-induced Easley back pain.


Back pain research documents that stress affects us. Easley back pain sufferers are not alone in this experience at Young Chiropractic.  Teenagers starting as young as 14 already experience low back pain that follows them into their 20’s and beyond. It may be a significant deal for some and not much of one for others. Some will seek meds, not go to school/work, not join in activities; others do not. Some predictors for poor reaction to low back pain are female gender, poor mental health status, sports involvement, genetics, negative back pain thoughts, etc. (1) Young adults in their 20s report that stress is among the factors linked to low back pain in young adults along with marital status, spine pain history, arduous exercise, job satisfaction, monotony, more time spent studying, and a history of familial back pain. (2) Low back pain is the most common reason for disability for those under 45 years of age, hugely influencing social and economic facets of life. (3) Stress may well be a cause in the worsening of low back pain. (4) Young Chiropractic and its chiropractic care helps take the stress out of back pain.


Back pain and psychological distress have a tendency to go hand-in-hand for Easley back pain sufferers. The link between spine pain and psychological stress is poorer in women by 7% - 11% of women and 4% of men. It goes both ways: spine pain is stressful, and stress prompts spine pain. (5) Job duties play a role in the stress Easley workers feel. Healthcare workers as a group are at higher risk of low back pain with 53% of them saying they have low back pain. Medical secretaries have the highest rate of low back pain at 56.9%. Standing a lot, sitting a lot, working a lot of years in the field, using a computer a lot are a few influencing factors in this group. (6) Eldercare workers who see stress as a big factor in their job have more low back pain. (7)
