New Roads 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.

New Roads back pain and neck pain patients bring everything – including their stress – with them to New Roads Chiropractic Center. You can, too! Together, we’ll 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 attending school on the way to adulthood. Along the way, kids have 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, uncomfortable relationships, extreme academic pressures, and unsatisfactory school lives may all put college students at risk for chronic low back pain.
