Smoking linked to back pain

It has just been reported in a prestigious American medical journal that patients with spine problems who stop smoking may experience significant improvements in back pain.

So  when you attend Lowford Clinic in Southampton for help with your back or neck problems, don’t be surprised if your Chiropractor or Physiotherapist badgers you to quit the old fags.  Not only will it save you pots of money, you may see a substantial improvement in your spinal pain.

Furthermore this advice would appear to hold for any individual suffering with any chronic pain condition.
