Nashua Stress and Its Contribution to Back Pain

August 06, 2019

From firefighters to nurses, from kids to older folks - and all of us in between - work-related stress is stressful. It influences our experience of pain and often elicits sessions of back pain and neck pain and back-related and neck-related pain. Moriarty Chiropractic is here to help suppress the power of work-related stress whenever possible. Nashua back pain and neck pain patients carry everything – including their stress – with them to Moriarty Chiropractic. You can, too! Together, we will manage 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 work 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 peers and news and learning issues 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% described musculoskeletal symptoms with back pain being the most noted. 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 stressed them out more. (3) Researchers found that psychological factors and fear-avoidance behaviors contributed to 11.8% of nursing care facility workers’ stating 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 cope. Your Nashua chiropractor is here for you.
