Manahawkin Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

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 times of back pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here to help suppress the impact of work-related stress as much as possible. Manahawkin back pain and neck pain patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to Manahawkin 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 via pain. None of us is immune to stress, not even a kid! A kid’s job is being a kid and going to school on the path 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 get low back pain, too. Depression, anxiety, coercion, uncomfortable 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 mentioned. More stress is linked 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 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’ reporting that chronic low back pain interfered with their work. (4) It is a rare person whose job is pure joy and stress-free. The rest of us find ways to manage. Your Manahawkin chiropractor is here for you.
