Augusta Smoking Increases Body Pain Particularly Spine Pain

November 14, 2019

Smoking. We know how bad it is. Smoking is bad. The body does not like it. Your spine hates it! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic likes your spine and offers Augusta chiropractic care for your spine. You like your spine or at least need it! Keep your spine healthy! Let Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic care for your spine when it needs a little help to re-discover its healthy state. The first step toward health for a Augusta smoker suffering with back pain may necessitate a chiropractic treatment plan that includes a plan to quit smoking.


Researchers are curious about issues linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who went through back surgery, they discovered that 18% were smokers. The researchers observed that contrasted with the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. These patients who suffer with coronary artery disease were more liable 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 linked to smoking status. Fascinatingly though, smoking status didn’t influence the disability status at a year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic would help a Augusta smoker who has Augusta back pain create 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 discovered that smoking is greatly connected to 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is with you to back your effort to stop smoking when you are ready.
