Nashua Smoking Increases Body Pain Particularly Spine Pain

November 14, 2019

Smoking. We know it’s bad. Smoking is bad. The body does not like it. Your spine dislikes it! Moriarty Chiropractic loves your spine and offers Nashua chiropractic care for your spine. You like your spine or at least require it! Keep your spine healthy! Let Moriarty Chiropractic take care of your spine when it requires some special attention to re-discover its healthy state. The first step toward health for a Nashua smoker suffering with back pain may require a chiropractic treatment plan that includes a plan to quit smoking.


Researchers are inquisitive about issues linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who experienced back surgery, they found 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 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 related to smoking status. Interestingly though, smoking status didn’t influence the disability status at a year after back surgery. (1) Modifying such risk factors work just as well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily. Moriarty Chiropractic would encourage a Nashua smoker who has Nashua back pain create a plan to stop smoking.


The body knows what’s good for it…and what is not. Smoking isn’t. Examining 2307 smokers and non-smokers, researchers discovered 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 bear the force of the painful influence though. If a smoker does not like pain, you’ll want to think about stop smoking! (2) Moriarty Chiropractic is with you to support your attempt to quit smoking when you’re ready.
