Researchers are inquisitive about factors related 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 suffer with coronary artery disease were more likely to be smokers. Smokers who underwent 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. Fascinatingly though, smoking status did not influence the disability status one year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Back And Neck Care Center would encourage a Severna Park smoker dealing with Severna Park back pain to stop smoking.


The body knows what’s good for it…and what’s not. Smoking isn’t. 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 force of the painful effect though. If a smoker doesn’t like pain, you’ll want to think about stop smoking! (2) Back And Neck Care Center is with you to back your attempt to stop smoking when you’re ready.
