How smoking affects your spine health

Smoking can harm your spine health and general body health. Smoking increases the risk for back pain and spine disc degeneration. Nicotine causes your blood vessels to shrink which restricts the blood flow of nutrients to your spine. If your spine doesn’t get the proper nutrients, it will become weak. Keep your spine healthy by not smoking. If you do smoke and have any back issues, contact William Capicotto today at (716) 881-0382.
