Researchers are inquisitive about issues related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who underwent back surgery, they found that 18% were smokers. The researchers observed that contrasted with the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. Patients in this group who have coronary artery disease were more likely 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 related to smoking status. Interestingly though, smoking status didn’t influence the disability status at a year after back surgery. (1) Altering such risk factors work equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic would encourage a Fernandina Beach smoker who has Fernandina Beach back pain create a plan to stop smoking.


The body gets what is good for it…and what is not. Smoking isn’t. Examining 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers discovered that smoking is most strongly associated with spine pain. Headache, trunk pain and limb pain ensued. Active smoking is linked to pain in every part of the body. The spine and head take the force of the painful influence though. If a smoker doesn’t like pain, you’ll want to think about stop smoking! (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is with you to support your effort to quit smoking when you are ready.
