Researchers are inquisitive about issues linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who went through back surgery, they found that 18% were smokers. The researchers noted that contrasted with the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. These patients who have coronary artery disease were more liable to be smokers. Smokers who had lumbar spine back surgery presented initially more with leg pain than back pain and disability. Their employment, insurance/uninsured, and education status were also linked to smoking status. Interestingly though, smoking status did not influence the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Altering such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Satterwhite Chiropractic would encourage a Oxford smoker dealing with Oxford back pain to stop smoking.


The body knows what’s good for it…and what’s not. Smoking is not. Examining 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers found 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic is with you to support your effort to stop smoking when you are ready.
