West Palm Beach Smoking Increases Body Pain Particularly Spine Pain

Smoking. We know it’s bad. Smoking is bad. The body does not like it. Your spine really doesn’t like it! Chiropractic Care likes your spine and offers West Palm Beach chiropractic care for your spine. You like your spine or at least require it! Be good to your spine and keep it healthy! Let Chiropractic Care take care of your spine when it requires some special attention to re-discover its healthy state. The first step toward health for a West Palm Beach smoker suffering with back pain may require a chiropractic treatment plan that includes a plan to stop smoking.


Researchers are curious about factors 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 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 related to smoking status. Fascinatingly though, smoking status did not influence the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Chiropractic Care would help a West Palm Beach smoker who has West Palm Beach back pain create a plan to stop smoking.


The body knows what’s good for it…and what is not. Smoking is not. Studying 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers found that smoking is most strongly associated with spine pain. Headache, trunk pain and limb pain ensued. Active smoking is associated with pain in every part of the body. The spine and head withstand the brunt of the painful effect though. If a smoker does not like pain, you’ll want to consider stop smoking! (2) Chiropractic Care is with you to back your effort to quit smoking when you are ready.
