SMOKING LINKED TO INCREASED RISK OF CHRONIC BACK PAIN
People who smoke are much more likely to develop chronic back pain than those who do not smoke. These are the findings of a new study by researchers from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.Reporting from Medical News Today,the researchers analyzed 160 participants who had recently developed subacute back pain, defined as back pain lasting 4-12 weeks. They also assessed 32 participants with chronic back pain – defined as having back pain for 5 years or more – and 35 participants with no back pain.The results of this study show that those who smoke increase the risk of chronic back pain. The researchers calculated that smokers were potentially 3 times more likely to get back pain. Even so, this study also shows that quitting smoking can reduce the risk of chronic back pain.
