Toronto Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

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

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 disrupted 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.
