The first step toward health for a Easley smoker suffering with back pain may necessitate a chiropractic treatment plan that includes a plan to stop smoking.


Researchers are inquisitive about factors related to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who underwent back surgery, they discovered that 18% were smokers. The researchers stated 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 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 didn’t affect the disability status at a year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Young Chiropractic would help a Easley smoker dealing with Easley back pain 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 most strongly 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 brunt of the painful effect though. If a smoker does not like pain, you’ll want to think about stop smoking! (2) Young Chiropractic is with you to back your attempt to stop smoking when you are ready.
