WHO SMOKES?

Researchers are inquisitive about issues linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who experienced back surgery, they found 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 suffer with coronary artery disease were more apt 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 related to smoking status. Fascinatingly though, smoking status did not affect the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Layden Chiropractic would encourage a Plainville smoker dealing with Plainville back pain to stop smoking.

SMOKING’S EFFECTS ON THE BODY

The body knows what’s good for it…and what is not. Smoking is not. Studying 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers discovered that smoking is most strongly connected to spine pain. Headache, trunk pain and limb pain followed. Active smoking is associated with pain in every part of the body. The spine and head take the force of the painful effect though. If a smoker does not like pain, you will want to consider stop smoking! (2) Layden Chiropractic is with you to support your effort to quit smoking when you’re ready.
