Researchers are curious about factors linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who experienced back surgery, they discovered that 18% were smokers. The researchers noted 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 apt 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 related to smoking status. Fascinatingly though, smoking status didn’t affect the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Altering such risk factors work equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Apple Country Chiropractic would help a Williamson smoker who has Williamson back pain establish a plan to stop smoking.


The body knows what’s 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 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’ll want to think about stop smoking! (2) Apple Country Chiropractic is with you to back your effort to stop smoking when you are ready.
