WHO SMOKES?

Researchers are curious 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 compared to the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. Patients in this group who have coronary artery disease were more apt to be smokers. Smokers who underwent lumbar spine back surgery presented initially 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 didn’t affect the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. would help a Auburn smoker dealing with Auburn back pain to stop smoking.

SMOKING’S EFFECTS ON THE BODY

The body knows what’s good for it…and what’s not. Smoking isn’t. 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 linked to pain in every part of the body. The spine and head withstand the brunt of the painful influence though. If a smoker does not like pain, you will want to think about stop smoking! (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is with you to back your effort to quit smoking when you’re ready.
