WHO SMOKES?

Researchers are curious about issues related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who went through back surgery, they found 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 had 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 did not affect the disability status at a year after back surgery. (1) Altering such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Hutter Chiropractic Office would encourage a Groton smoker dealing with Groton back pain to stop smoking.

SMOKING’S EFFECTS ON THE BODY

The body gets what is 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 linked to pain in every part of the body. The spine and head bear the brunt of the painful effect though. If a smoker does not like pain, you will want to think about stop smoking! (2) Hutter Chiropractic Office is with you to back your effort to stop smoking when you are ready.
