lower_back_pain_doctor_nyc.jpgYour stressful work life is likely the cause of your back pain. A high-stress job can predispose even the healthiest of workers to experience their backs acting up. More and more in this 21st century, stressed-out white collar workers have demanding jobs that become a real pain in the back.

Job Stress Back Pain

Can you relate to these constant challenges during your work day? If so, you are under the job stress gun.

  • Project deadlines
  • Ringing telephones
  • Unanswered emails piling up
  • Unanswered text messages
  • Sitting in front of a computer all day

How Job Stress Seeks to Cause Havoc

Job stress will seek out the weakest link in your body.

According to Dr. Brian Kessler – Medical Director of Spine and Sports Medicine – back pain is one of the top reasons for:

  • Doctor’s office visits during work hours
  • Days off work due to pain and disability
  • Work-related disability claims
  • Litigation stemming from back injuries at work

Lifting, standing, or sitting too long – combined with a stressful work environment – equals job-related back pain.
