Conflict Between Work and Family Causes Significant Musculoskeletal Pain
For working parents, it is very tough to manage time with family and work. Family is very important and must never be neglected, especially when it comes to children. However, work is also essential to keeping the family financially stable. Such a predicament can create a lot of stress, especially for people who have a varying work schedule.
For hospital patient care workers, for example, balancing family time and work time is a challenge because both priorities tend to fall at the same time. In addition, the working environment of a hospital is very stressful. A recent study of 1,119 hospital workers over three months recently concluded that, as a result, hospital workers have a greater risk of experiencing musculoskeletal pain in their necks and shoulders, arm pain, and lower extremity pain.
Musculoskeletal pain can substantially affect work output and performance, as well as family relationships.
