From nurses to firefighters,
from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related
stress is stressful. It affects our sense of
pain and often elicits sessions of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is ready
to help squash the power of work-related stress whenever possible. La Grande back pain and neck pain
patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC. 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 work is being a kid and attending
school on the journey to adulthood. Along the way, kids get
job-related stress. The pressures of grades and friends and news
and learning problems get to them. Adolescents find themselves
with low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uneasy
relationships, extreme academic pressures, and unsatisfactory
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% reported
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most mentioned.
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 translated
into higher psychological demands for them. (3) Researchers
discovered that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors
contributed to 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ reporting
that chronic low back pain interfered with their work. (4) It’s a rare person whose job is pure happiness
and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your La Grande
chiropractor is by your side.
