WHO SMOKES?

Researchers are curious about factors related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who went through back surgery, they found that 18% were smokers. The researchers observed that compared to the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. These patients 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 linked 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. Moses Chiropractic would encourage a West Palm Beach smoker who has West Palm Beach back pain create a plan to stop smoking.

SMOKING’S EFFECTS ON THE BODY

The body knows what’s good for it…and what is not. Smoking is not. Examining 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers found that smoking is most strongly connected to 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 withstand the force of the painful effect though. If a smoker doesn’t like pain, you will want to consider stop smoking! (2) Moses Chiropractic is with you to back your effort to stop smoking when you’re ready.
