Preston Smoking Increases Body Pain Particularly Spine Pain

Let Chiropractic Associates take care of your spine when it requires a little help to get back to its healthy state. Step one toward health for a Preston smoker suffering with back pain may necessitate a chiropractic treatment plan that incorporates a plan to quit smoking.


Researchers are curious about factors related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who experienced back surgery, they discovered that 18% were smokers. The researchers stated 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 underwent 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. Interestingly though, smoking status did not influence the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Altering such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Chiropractic Associates would encourage a Preston smoker dealing with Preston back pain to stop smoking.


The body gets what is good for it…and what’s not. Smoking is not. Studying 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers found that smoking is greatly associated with 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 think about stop smoking! (2) Chiropractic Associates is with you to back your effort to quit smoking when you’re ready.
