Dr. Hartwig here at Marcum Chiropractic. Everyone knows smoking is bad for you, but did you also know that smoking can lead to musculoskeletal problems? One of the main things that it can do is it can dry out the intervertebral discs that act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae in your spine.

When the discs dry out, they can lead to disc bulges, herniations, or annular tears, all of which are extremely painful. So, if lung cancer wasn’t enough motivation for you to stop or never smoke, then maybe this will help.
