Researchers are inquisitive about issues 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. 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. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center would help a Manahawkin smoker dealing with Manahawkin back pain to stop smoking.


The body gets what is good for it…and what’s not. Smoking is not. Studying 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers discovered 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 withstand the brunt of the painful effect though. If a smoker does not like pain, you will want to consider stop smoking! (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is with you to back your attempt to quit smoking when you are ready.
