Smoking causes all kinds of things to happen in our body, none of them are good!  But one thing that many people didn't know is that smoking is linked to more advanced arthritis, spinal lesions, and lower back pain.  Often times, when talking with people about their long standing back pain, we try to offer advice on how to improve their lifestyle through proper diet, supplementation, exercise, etc, and smoking cessation is no exception.  There are many tools out there to help you or a loved one quit smoking, many of them offer free nicotine replacement items, support groups, and goal setting apps on your smart phone. 

Here is a video that touches on some of the issues with smoking as it relates to back pain.  Please share with a friend or someone you know that smokes, not only will it help improve their health, it can prevent them from having to deal with chronic back issues.
