Life in one of the biggest cities in the world can really take a toll on one’s health. The life of many an overworked Londoner is filled with stressful endeavors, such as the simple act of riding a tube. There are many common pains that could be caused by stress, and in most cases, stress is caused by work-related factors.
Did you know that 44% of those working in London are currently going through a period of stress, with 13% saying that they regularly feel close to breaking point due to stress?
The latest figures, which come from research by private healthcare provider Bupa show that stress is leading to further mental health problems such as depression. 45% of stressed people in London go on to suffer from further mental illnesses.
Businesses are very aware of when someone has a muscular-skeletal injury such as a bad back or another medical condition. They know the best way to get that person back to full fitness is to offer support and help. You don’t expect someone with a diagnosed back problem for it to just get better on its own. Businesses would look to give that person time off, to access physiotherapy, and to access help to recover.
Whether they’re pursuing huge endeavours or simply getting by with the bare minimum, many of London’s workers are overstressed to the point that they find it hard to take care of themselves. Stress nowadays is something that local employers should never dismiss. Aside from mental issues, stress can physically manifest in the form of back pains, fatigue, and frequent headaches.
When it comes to these cases, seeking physiotherapy in London and other cities where the cost of living is very high (and the pace of life is very fast) can offer a possible solution or two. There are many stress-induced problems such as: sclerosis, back, chest, and muscle pains and breathing problems. All of these can be treated with the help of physiotherapy experts.
A Chartered London physio like CK Physiotherapy, for instance, would treat the problem using a holistic and hands-on approach. All affected areas will be treated through methods like active and passive exercise therapy and soft tissue massage, depending on the patient’s own unique case. So for Londoners like you who are having the usual set of stress-related pains, perhaps it is high time you visited a professional physiotherapist.
