Job Related Stress Ups Risk of Colds and Flu

Stressed out workers are significantly more likely than their relaxed counterparts to develop acute infections such as common colds, flu-like illnesses and gastroenteritis, according to a study of more than 8000 employees from various companies who were tracked for 3 years.

The analysis revealed that employees in highly demanding jobs suffered from colds 20% more often than employees in less demanding positions. Job insecurity also led to an increase in ailments.

In addition, employees working shifts have a higher chance of developing infections than daytime employees, found the study. The risk is greatest among those who work in a three-shift system.

And, subjects who complained of job "burnout" suffered from gastroenteritis almost twice as often as employees without "burnout".

Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care.
