From firefighters to nurses,
from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our sense of
pain and often prompts bouts of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is ready
to help squash the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. Toronto back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. You can, too! Together, we’ll handle
work-stress and back and neck pain.
Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention through pain. None of us is resistant
to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and going to
school on the journey to adulthood. Along the way, kids experience
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news
and learning issues get to them. Adolescents get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uncomfortable
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 stress on the job. 40% reported
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most noted.
More stress is linked to 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
found that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors
caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating
that chronic low back pain interfered with their work. (4) It’s a rare person whose job is pure joy
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Toronto
chiropractor is here for you.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE STRESSED
Chiropractors like yours at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre see stressed-out
patients. One study found that more than 30% of
chiropractic patients said they were moderately

some stress-coping strategies. 44% were interested in taking a course to enhance their stress
management skills. (5) Chiropractic care is offered to all,
regardless of age or profession. Your Toronto chiropractor is equipped
to diagnose the physical cause of back pain and neck pain and to correlate any
work-related stress that may be contributing to your Toronto
