Easley Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

August 06, 2019

From nurses to firefighters, from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related stress is stressful. It influences our experience of pain and often elicits sessions of back pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Young Chiropractic is ready to help squash the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. Easley back pain and neck pain patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to Young Chiropractic. You can, too! Together, we will handle work-stress and back and neck pain.


Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention via pain. None of us is resistant to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s work is being a kid and going to school on the path to adulthood. Along the way, kids get 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, uncomfortable 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 translated into higher psychological demands for them. (3) Researchers found that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating that chronic low back pain disrupted their work. (4) It is an unusual person whose job is pure happiness and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Easley chiropractor is here for you.
