Millville Smoking Increases Body Pain Particularly Spine Pain

Smoking. We know how bad it is. Smoking is bad. The body doesn’t like it. Your spine really does not like it! Wilson Family Chiropractic likes your spine and offers Millville chiropractic care for your spine. You love your spine or at least need it! Keep your spine healthy! Let Wilson Family Chiropractic care for your spine when it requires a little help to get back to its healthy state. The first step toward health for a Millville smoker suffering with back pain may necessitate a chiropractic treatment plan that includes a plan to stop smoking.


Researchers are inquisitive about factors related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who went through 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. These patients who suffer with coronary artery disease were more likely 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 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 just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Wilson Family Chiropractic would help a Millville smoker who has Millville back pain create a plan to stop smoking.


The body gets what is good for it…and what is not. Smoking isn’t. Studying 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers found that smoking is greatly associated with spine pain. Headache, trunk pain and limb pain ensued. Active smoking is associated with 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 will want to consider stop smoking! (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic is with you to back your attempt to quit smoking when you’re ready.
