Fort Wayne Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

August 06, 2019

From firefighters to nurses, from children to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related stress is stressful. It affects our experience of pain and often prompts sessions of back pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is here to help suppress the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. You can, too! Together, we will manage work-stress and back and neck pain.


Work-related stress messes with us. It reveals itself through pain. None of us is immune to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and attending school on the way to adulthood. Along the way, kids get job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news and learning problems get to them. Adolescents get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uneasy relationships, extreme academic pressures, and unsatisfactory 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% described 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 discovered 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 is an unusual person whose job is pure joy and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to cope. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is by your side.
