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 triggers times of back
pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Palmer Chiropractic Center is ready
to help suppress the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Lynchburg back pain and neck pain
patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to
Palmer Chiropractic Center. You can, too! Together, we will deal with
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 work is being a kid and going to
school on the journey to adulthood. Along the way, kids have
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 disappointing
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% described
musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most mentioned.
More stress related to 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 stressed them out more. (3) Researchers
found that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors
caused 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ reporting
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 manage. Your Lynchburg
chiropractor is by your side.
CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE STRESSED
Chiropractors like yours at Palmer Chiropractic Center see stressed-out
patients. One study found that more than 30% of
chiropractic patients described themselves as moderately

that it would be helpful if their chiropractic care included stress-coping strategies. 44% were interested in participating
in a course to improve their stress
management skills. (5) Chiropractic care is offered to all,
regardless of age or profession. Your Lynchburg chiropractor is prepared
to diagnose the physical cause of back pain and neck pain and to correlate any
work-related stress that may be influencing your Lynchburg
back pain and neck pain. The discussion of how to better deal with stress via lifestyle modifications,
exercise, etc., helps many Lynchburg back pain and neck pain patients improve
