WORK-RELATED STRESS

Work-related stress messes with us. It gets our attention 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 get job-related stress. The pressures of grades and peers and news and learning issues get to them. Adolescents get 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.
