Wondering where your back pain is coming from? If you’re a smoker, it could be down to those nasty cigarettes!
Smoking damages almost every part of your body – even your spine. And according to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor, smokers may also have higher ratings of pain than non-smokers. While the exact reasons for this are not clear, the belief appears to have some connection with the body’s natural hormonal activity for detecting pain. Put simply, smoking inhibits the natural hormones and chemicals that help the body to deal with pain.
If you smoke, you should seriously think about quitting – for the health of your spine and your entire body.
