Step one toward health for a Murfreesboro smoker suffering with back pain may require a chiropractic treatment plan that includes a plan to stop smoking.


Researchers are inquisitive about issues linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who underwent 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. Patients in this group who have 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 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 equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Most Chiropractic Clinic would help a Murfreesboro smoker dealing with Murfreesboro 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 take the brunt of the painful influence though. If a smoker does not like pain, you will want to consider stop smoking! (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic is with you to back your effort to quit smoking when you’re ready.
