Millville Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

From nurses to firefighters, 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. Wilson Family Chiropractic is ready to help squash the impact of work-related stress whenever possible. Millville back pain and neck pain patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to Wilson Family Chiropractic. You can, too! Together, we’ll handle 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 attending 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 put college students at risk 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 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 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 joy and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Millville chiropractor is here for you.
