Malverne 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! Malverne Health & Wellness likes your spine and offers Malverne chiropractic care for your spine. You love your spine or at least need it! Be good to your spine and keep it healthy! Let Malverne Health & Wellness care for your spine when it requires a little help to re-discover its healthy state. Step one toward health for a Malverne smoker suffering with back pain may require a chiropractic treatment plan that includes a plan to quit smoking.


Researchers are curious about factors related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who went through back surgery, they discovered 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 suffer with 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 did not influence the disability status at a year after back surgery. (1) Altering such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Malverne Health & Wellness would encourage a Malverne smoker who has Malverne back pain establish a plan to stop smoking.


The body gets what is good for it…and what is not. Smoking isn’t. Examining 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers found that smoking is greatly connected to 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 bear the brunt of the painful influence though. If a smoker doesn’t like pain, you’ll want to consider stop smoking! (2) Malverne Health & Wellness is with you to back your attempt to stop smoking when you are ready.
