Researchers are curious about issues linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who experienced 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. Patients in this group who have coronary artery disease were more apt 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 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. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center would help a Pensacola smoker dealing with Pensacola 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 discovered that smoking is most strongly 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 effect though. If a smoker doesn’t like pain, you’ll want to consider stop smoking! (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is with you to back your attempt to quit smoking when you’re ready.
