Researchers are inquisitive about factors linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who underwent 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 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 affect the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Chiropractic Solutions would encourage a San Jose smoker who has San Jose back pain establish 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 discovered 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 bear the force of the painful influence though. If a smoker does not like pain, you will want to think about stop smoking! (2) Chiropractic Solutions is with you to support your attempt to quit smoking when you are ready.
