Researchers are inquisitive about factors related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who experienced back surgery, they discovered that 18% were smokers. The researchers observed that compared to the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. Patients in this group who suffer with coronary artery disease were more liable to be smokers. Smokers who had 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. Fascinatingly though, smoking status did not influence the disability status at a year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Tarrytown Chiropractic would encourage a Tarrytown smoker who has Tarrytown back pain establish a plan to stop smoking.


The body gets what is good for it…and what is not. Smoking is not. Examining 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers found that smoking is most strongly associated with spine pain. Headache, trunk pain and limb pain followed. Active smoking is associated with pain in every part of the body. The spine and head withstand the force of the painful influence though. If a smoker doesn’t like pain, you will want to consider stop smoking! (2) Tarrytown Chiropractic is with you to back your effort to quit smoking when you’re ready.
