Researchers are curious about issues related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who went through back surgery, they discovered that 18% were smokers. The researchers noted that compared to the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. Patients in this group who have coronary artery disease were more liable to be smokers. Smokers who had lumbar spine back surgery came to their healthcare provider more with leg pain than back pain and disability. Their employment, insurance/uninsured, and education status were also linked to smoking status. Interestingly though, smoking status did not influence the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation would encourage a Tonawanda smoker dealing with Tonawanda back pain to stop smoking.


The body knows what’s good for it…and what’s not. Smoking isn’t. Examining 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers discovered that smoking is greatly associated with spine pain. Headache, trunk pain and limb pain followed. Active smoking is linked to pain in every part of the body. The spine and head take the brunt of the painful effect though. If a smoker does not like pain, you will want to consider stop smoking! (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is with you to support your effort to stop smoking when you are ready.
