How Smoking can affect your Spine Health

Smoking can cause severe damage to your body including your spine health. Smoking can lead to degenerative disc disease. Degenerative disc disease is when your spinal discs become weak and dry out. This can be caused from smoking because smoking cuts down on the flow of nutrients to your spine. Smoking after you just had spine surgery slows down the healing process and can re-damage your spine. Also, studies have reported that osteoporosis and smoking have a strong correlation. If you have any back problems, call us today to schedule an appointment.
