WHO SMOKES?

Researchers are inquisitive about factors linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who underwent back surgery, they discovered that 18% were smokers. The researchers stated that contrasted with the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. These patients who have coronary artery disease were more likely 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. Interestingly though, smoking status didn’t influence the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Altering such risk factors work equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Palmer Chiropractic Center would encourage a Lynchburg smoker who has Lynchburg back pain create a plan to stop smoking.

SMOKING’S EFFECTS ON THE BODY

The body gets what is good for it…and what’s not. Smoking is not. 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’ll want to consider stop smoking! (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center is with you to back your effort to stop smoking when you’re ready.
